On 16 December 2016, the Utility Regulator published, for consultation, its draft determination for the Gas Transmission Price Control from October 2017 onwards (GT17).
The draft determination sets out our proposals for the amount the holders of high pressure gas conveyance licences in Northern Ireland have to run their businesses and invest in the gas network. Key aspects for the companies are on operating and maintenance/replacement expenditure as well as, for GNI (UK) and WTL, proposed rate of return. The draft determination also considers the expected impact of these proposals for consumers.
The consultation on the draft determination closed on 17 February 2017.
