ERA publishes annual tariffs for gas network providers

The Economic Regulation Authority (ERA) has recently published annual reference tariffs for gas network providers in Western Australia, these tariffs apply to the following service providers as follows:

Goldfields Gas Pipeline (GGP)

GGP proposed and the ERA has approved an adjustment to the reference tariff that applies from 1 January 2017 to take account of annual updating of the return on debt.

Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline (DBNGP)

DBNGP proposed and the ERA has approved an adjustment to the reference tariff that applies from 1 January 2017 that takes account of variations to CPI and the trailing average debt risk premium.  The approved reference tariffs are 1.9 % higher than current reference tariffs.

Mid-West and South-West Gas Distribution Systems

ATCO has proposed and the ERA has approved a variation to the reference tariffs for retailers of the Mid-West and South-West Gas Distribution Systems.  The approved reference tariffs are nearly 8% lower.  These reference tariffs may be charged by ATCO Gas Australia Pty Ltd (ATCO) to gas retailers.
