On 2 January 2020, DBNGP (WA) Transmission Pty Ltd (DBP) submitted proposed revisions to the access arrangement for the Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas Pipeline (DBNGP).
The ERA published an issues paper to assist interested parties to prepare submissions on DBP’s proposed revisions.
The ERA received seven submissions in response to DBP’s proposal and the ERA’s issues paper. The matters raised in these submissions were considered by the ERA when preparing the Draft Decision.
On 14 August 2020, the ERA published its Draft Decision which was not to approve DBP’s proposal and required 53 amendments.
DBP initially had 30 business days to submit its revised proposed access arrangement. DBP requested an extension of an additional 7 business days to provide its revised proposal which was accepted by the ERA.
DBP now has until 4:00pm WST on 7 October 2020 to submit a revised proposal, addressing the matters raised in the Draft Decision.
Interested parties have until 4:00pm WST on 4 November 2020 to make submissions on the Draft Decision and DBP’s revised proposal once submitted.
