The Gas Bulletin Board (GBB) was established on 1 July 2008, as a gas market and system information website covering all major gas production fields, major demand centres and natural gas transmission pipeline systems of South Australia, Victoria, Tasmania, NSW, ACT and Queensland.
The objective of the GBB is to facilitate improved decision making and trade in gas commodity and pipeline capacity, through the provision of readily accessible and up-to-date gas system and market information.
AEMO operates the GBB in accordance with its obligations under the National Gas Law (NGL) and National Gas Rules (NGR). GBB facility operators provide AEMO with information as required under the NGR, for publication to the GBB in standard reports and displayed on the GBB map.
AEMO is responsible for the Gas Services Information (GSI) functions in Western Australia and operates the Gas Bulletin Board for Western Australia.
2018 GBB upgrade and access to Historical Data
On September 30, 2018, a rule change to enhance the breadth and accuracy of information provided to the market through the GBB was implemented, requiring the development of a new GBB platform. As such, all data submitted to the GBB prior to 30 September 2018 has been archived and can be found at the Archive tab above.
Interpreting The Map
- There are tabs across the top to view either an overall summary, or the ability to view solely pipeline, production or storage information
- Data is summarised in a tabular form to the right of the map
- A ‘Play’ button which cycles through the tabs every 30 seconds automatically
- A full screen option if you would like to display the data on a monitor/TV
Things To Note:
- All numbers displayed are in Terajoules (TJ)
- Not all production facilities and pipelines are represented on the map. All data is contained on the Reports tab.
- Values displayed for Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide are intended to represent the STTM hub demand for those cities (notwithstanding the Adelaide data issue mentioned below).
- GPG actual data can be obtained in the ‘Pipeline Connection Flow’ report.
- NT value will remain as zero until the NGP is reporting data to the GBB. At this stage this is expected to be the end of April 2019 (these are GBB timeframes, not when NGP will begin flowing gas).
- The date defaults to today’s gas day with today’s forecasts and nominations. Changing the date in the box to a day in the past will display actual data for that day. Selecting a day in the future will display all nominations and forecasts for that day submitted.
- There are no negative numbers displayed. For bi-directional pipelines observe the direction of the arrow to determine which way gas is flowing.
- The nomination for Adelaide on the map is displaying the SEA Gas nomination only. We are working on a solution to also include nominations from the Moomba to Adelaide pipeline. The actual number is displaying data for both pipelines.
