The AEMC has today released a consultation paper on a request to amend the consultation process used to make changes to the Short Term Trading Market (STTM) Interface Protocol

The Short Term Trading Market (STTM) is a market-based wholesale gas balancing mechanism established at defined gas hubs in Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane.

The AEMC has commenced an expedited rule making process on the grounds that the rule change request is a request for a non-controversial rule. Under an expedited rule making process, a final rule determination must be made within eight weeks of the initiation of the process. 

Objections to the proposed expedited process must be lodged with the AEMC by 10 October 2019 and should include reasons for the objection.

Written submissions on the rule change request must be lodged with AEMC by 24 October 2019.
