PRODUCTIVITY COMMISSION REPORT ON THE REVIEW OF THE GAS ACCESS REGIME

The Government is today releasing the report of the Productivity Commission inquiry into the gas access regime.

The Government welcomes the report, which provides an informative discussion of key issues in gas access regulation. The report contains a number of recommendations covering a range of important gas access issues. Those issues include the appropriateness of an industry specific access regime, the Gas Code’s effect on investment in pipeline networks and the Gas Code’s consistency with the National Access Regime.

The Government is releasing the report now in recognition of the public and industry interest in these issues. The Ministerial Council on Energy will develop the response to the Commission's recommendations.

Copies of the report may be downloaded from the Productivity Commission's website.
