Gas Transportation Transmission Planning Code (TPC)

The Transmission Planning Code describes our approach to planning and developing the NTS in accordance with our duties as a gas transporter and other statutory obligations relating to safety and environmental matters. Statements are prepared in accordance with the obligations placed on the Company by Special Condition 7B of our Gas Transporters Licence in respect of the NTS. This licence condition requires us to prepare and consult on a Transmission Planning Code, and comply with the Code in the planning and development of the NTS.
