The Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) is responsible for the day to day operation of Eastern Australia's Gas and Electricity markets.
Join AEMO's experts on all things gas, Robbie Flood and Nicole Dodd, who will explain the complexities of how our gas market works to match supply and demand, and look at the challenges currently encountered in Eastern Australia's gas supply. Key topics we will cover include:
- How the gas market is “cleared” on a day to day basis, ie. how AEMO ensures that the right amount of gas is produced daily to meet demand, including the use of line pack and storage
- Medium term contracting: How do large (and medium) gas users contract with suppliers to ensure availability?
- Long-term strategic concerns in gas supply: AEMO's role in facilitating markets for LNG import and export.
Robbie Flood is the Manager, Gas Market Monitoring at AEMO. Previously he has held roles as Manager Wholesale Markets with Territory Generation in Darwin, and as the National Manager Spot Trading with Alinta Energy in Sydney. He also worked with the WA market operator at the commencement of the WA electricity market and has had some involvement in most electricity and gas markets around Australia.
Nicole Dodd is part of the Market Design team at AEMO. Nicole took a lead role in the implementation of the new Pipeline Capacity Trading markets to facilitate trading of gas pipeline capacity on the east coast of Australia. Nicole works on projects related to the development of both the electricity and gas markets in Australia and has also previously had roles working in the operational and corporate governance areas of AEMO.
