‘Blunt instrument’: Govt prepares to make determination to invoke domestic gas trigger
Resources Minister Madeleine King says the domestic gas trigger is a “blunt instrument,” and pulling it is a “measure of last resort”.
The government is preparing to issue a notion of intent to make a determination to invoke the security mechanism, forcing suppliers to keep more supply onshore.
“It allows the government in the event of a predicted shortfall to restrict exports to ensure enough gas is available for domestic use,” Ms King said.
