22 June 2021 - AoG Reticulated gas contract renewed

What's covered

The supply of reticulated natural gas to participating agencies via pipelines in the North Island.

What’s not covered

The supply of other gases – Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), medical and industrial gases or gas stored in bottles/cylinders or bulk tanks.

How it works

The supply agreement for reticulated gas is a sole source arrangement with Genesis Energy.

To participate and benefit from this agreement, agencies (including schools) must accept and agree to comply with the terms of the new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). This includes agencies who have participated in the first AoG reticulated gas contract that expired 30 September 2018. A copy MoU can be found in the joining documentation section, you will need to login first.

Joining documentation

A pricing supplement is available upon request. This will include the rates unique to your sites and is prepared by Genesis Energy. Until signed, the pricing supplement does not commit your agency to accept the contract but it is useful for your decision making process.

Our team is available to assist with your agency’s transition and any requirements you may have, including completing comparative pricing analysis. For questions and support, email us.

Features and benefits

  • gas and carbon price certainty for Time of Use sites
  • total price certainty, with fixed rates and no escalation for Non-Time of Use sites
  • pricing based on the shared purchasing power of All-of-Government
  • support from the AoG Utilities team.

Savings and costs


Agencies who participate in the Reticulated gas contract don't need to go through a full procurement process of their own, which saves time, effort and cost. On average agencies have saved 18% using the first contract, we expect a similar level of savings for the new contract.


Most AoG contracts include an administration fee. This fee is a simple and transparent way of recovering the cost of developing, sourcing, implementing and managing AoG contracts.

An administration fee of 4.7 cents per gigajoule (unit of energy) will be applied.

The supplier collects the administration fee and passes it on to MBIE. Agencies do not need to make any payments directly to MBIE.
