The Australian Energy Market Commission will tomorrow publish Version 26 of the National Gas Rules.

The new version of the rules incorporate the National Gas Amendment (Removal of Force Majeure Provisions in the DWGM) Rule 2014, and the National Gas Amendment (Removal of Gas Bulletin Board emergency information page) Rule 2015, which were made in recent months.

The force majeure provisions and emergency information page had become redundant, having been superseded by changes in the market and, in the case of the Bulletin Board emergency information page, alternative forms of emergency communication.

The Commission publishes a new version of the National Gas Rules when changes to the rules are to commence operation.
