Register in the Gas Supply Hub
This page outlines the requirements for registering as a member of the Gas Supply Hub (GSH).
Registration as a member of the GSH is required for anyone who wishes to participate in wholesale trading on the gas trading exchange, obtain viewing rights or participate as a Reallocator.
In addition, a member of the GSH may appoint an Agent Member, who will represent the Appointing Member, and will exercise the rights and perform the obligations of the Appointing Member.
Membership requirements and eligibility criteria are set out in the GSH Exchange Agreement which is published by AEMO under Part 22 of the National Gas Rules (NGR).
