Gas Industry Co has issued its report New Zealand Gas Story - the State and Performance of the New Zealand Gas Industry on the current state and performance of the New Zealand gas industry. This is the first comprehensive review of the gas industry since 2006.
The report has two origins, one legislative and one market-based. As the 'industry body' under Part 4A of the Gas Act 1992, Gas Industry Co is required to report to the Minister of Energy and Resources on the state and performance of the gas industry. The second, market-based driver for this report was a request from industry participants for Gas Industry Co to play a central role in 'stitching together' the New Zealand Gas Story, to assist knowledge and understanding of gas and its role in the New Zealand economy and society.
