Demand market customers have the option to actively participate in the short term trading market to manage the procurement of their own natural gas, which means a customer will no longer procure gas through a retailer.
As a self-contracting user, demand market customers can take advantage of purchasing gas from the wholesale market and proactively manage their own natural gas requirements. Becoming a self-contracting user also provides customers with other opportunities to explore ways of reducing supply and volume risks, including through ‘park and loan’ facilities.
The pathway to becoming an self-contracting user involves an application and registration process through Jemena and the Australian Energy Market Operator.
