On 1 August 2017, the National Gas (Pipeline Access – Arbitration) Amendment Rule 2017 (SA) was made pursuant to section 294F (1) of the National Gas Law (NGL), which is the Schedule to the National Gas (South Australia) Act 2008 (SA).
The Amendment Rule amended the NGR by, among other changes, inserting a new Part 23 (‘Access to non-scheme pipelines’) into the NGR. The objectives of the new Part 23 of the NGR include facilitating access to pipeline services on non-scheme pipelines by requiring the publication and exchange of information and introducing an arbitration process to resolve access disputes.
Rule 558(1) of the NGR (inserted as part of the new Part 23) requires a service provider of a non-scheme pipeline to develop, maintain and publish on its website a user access guide that contains certain prescribed information in relation to the non-scheme pipeline.
