Consultation on Harmonised Tariffs for Gas

21 June 2018

Gas flame

Today the Utility Regulator publishes a consultation setting out our proposals for implementing changes to the NI gas transmission charging regime. These changes are required to implement an EU Regulation on establishing a network code on harmonised transmission tariff structures for gas, by 31 May 2019.

It is our view that the NI postalised tariff regime already largely complies with the requirements. A key change required is that we must propose an adjustment to the capacity commodity split, which determines how transmission revenue is allocated between a charge for the use of the pipeline and a charge for the units of gas which pass through the pipeline.

We welcome all views on any aspect of this consultation by noon on 30 August 2018.

Copies of the consultation can be made available in large print, Braille, audio cassette and a variety of minority languages if required. Please contact Jillian Ferris on 028 9031 1575 or email: Gas_networks_responses@uregni.gov.uk with cc to jillian.ferris@uregni.gov.uk to request this.
