Notice of Making of a Recommendation for an Amendment to Gas Governance Regulations

This notice of a recommendation for an amendment to gas governance regulations is issued by Gas Industry Company Limited (“Gas Industry Co”) approved as the industry body by Order in Council under section 43ZL of the Gas Act 1992 (“Act”).

Section 43O(1) of the Act provides that, no later than 10 working days after making a recommendation for a gas governance regulation to the Minister, Gas Industry Co must publicise the recommendation and the assessment completed under section 43N of the Act. This recommendation is being made in reliance on section 43P of the Act and therefore the consultation and assessment requirements in section 43L and 43N of the Act do not apply to this recommendation.


On 7 December 2023, Gas Industry Co made a recommendation to the Minister, under sections 43F(2)(e) and 43S of the Act, and in reliance on section 43P of the Act, for approval of an amendment to the Gas Governance (Critical Contingency Management) Regulations 2008 (“Regulations”).

The proposed amendments provide for removal of the Broadlands and Taupo points of measurement from Schedule 1 of the Regulations to enable the transmission system owner to exclude these gas gates from the points of measurement in its critical contingency management plan.

A copy of Gas Industry Co’s recommendation is available on Gas Industry Co’s website

Dated at Wellington this 12th day of December 2023.

For and on behalf of Gas Industry Co:
Rt Hon JAMES BOLGER, onz, Chair.
