The AEMC completed their consultation and approved the Rule change on 30 August 2012 to enable MSV User to User transactions.
AEMO is commencing consultation on the proposed STTM procedure changes to enable MSV User-to-User transactions following the AEMC’s Rule Change.
AEMO has published a Proposed Procedure Change below, covering the following modifications to the STTM Procedures:
- - Modify section 7.3 (Market Schedule Variations) and section 10.5 (Variation Charges) of the Procedures to ensure that the originating Participant covers both STTM Shipper and STTM User.
- - Add a clause in section 7.3 (Market Schedule Variations) of the Procedures to ensure the STTM User that increases its modified market schedule quantity must be the originating Participant, where the proposed MSV transaction relates to STTM Users as the originating and receiving Participant.
- - Add a clause in section 7.3 (Market Schedule Variations) of the Procedures to ensure that the STTM Shipper is the originating Participant, where the proposed MSV transaction relates to an STTM Shipper and an STTM User.
- - Add a rule in section 7.5 (Variation Charges) to ensure that the user-to-user MSV transaction is not subject to Variation Charges.
The changes are expected to come into effect in the week commencing 15 April 2013. In accordance with rule 135EE(5) of the NGR, AEMO will publish a notice 15 business days prior to the effective date specifying the exact date on which the proposed new procedures come into effect.
Gas Market Registered Participants and other interested parties are invited to submit comments on the proposed procedure changes to AEMO by Tuesday 12 March 2013 via email to:
