Consultation on Gas Regulation

Published: 21 December 2012

Consultation opened on 21 December 2012. Consultation closed 28 February 2013.


The Utility Regulator today publishes a consultation on implementing the European Gas Regulation (EC) 715/2009 in Northern Ireland.

One of the main requirements of the regulation is to implement an entry exit system of tariffs, whereas Northern Ireland currently has a point to point transportation system. Before changes are made to implement entry exit, it is important to decide how system operation in Northern Ireland is to be organised before any changes are made. Consequently, this paper also considers the merits of single system operation in Northern Ireland.

We intend to organise a workshop for early February to discuss the issues in this consultation. The date of this will be announced in early January.

Copies of the document will be made available in large print, Braille, audio cassette and a variety of minority languages if required.
