Energy Commission's (EC) Jurisdiction
In September 1998, Pursuant to the Gas Supply Act 1993, a Gas Utility Licence (“GUL”) was issued to Gas Malaysia by the Director General, Department of Electricity and Gas Supply (“DEGS”). Subsequently, the DEGS was dissolved and its regulatory functions were taken over by the Energy Commission (“EC”), which was established in 1992 to enhance the effectiveness of regulatory control over energy.
To comply with the GUL conditions, Gas Malaysia regularly submits monthly and quarterly reports to the EC, outlining issues concerning maintenance and operations of the gas distribution systems as well as customer service. Under the terms and conditions, the license of various Codes and Statements of Performance have been submitted to the EC, and they are being updated regularly in line with market changes and international best practices.
