Introduction

The Model Gas Sales Agreement is intended for use in non-complex wholesale gas sale and purchase supply contracts in Australia between Joint Venture Sellers and a single Buyer. It contains representative provisions typically found in wholesale firm Delivered Gas sale agreements.

The Model Gas Sales Agreement may be used in any State or Territory of Australia and in offshore jurisdictions with similar legal systems such as New Zealand and in SE Asia.

There are also extensive Alternative and Optional Clauses which can be used as substituted or additional clauses which fit seamlessly into the basic model.

Impact of Legislative Changes

The Model GSA takes into account the recent changes effected by the Personal Property Securities Act 2009 (Cth) which came into effect on 30 January 2012.
