The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) released Information Paper: Developments in Producer Prices Indexes for Natural Gas, Dec 2015 (ABS cat. no. 6427.0.55.008) on 16 December 2015 to:

    1. Provide an overview of price statistics currently published by the ABS relevant to the natural gas industry; and
    2. Outline a proposal to enhance price statistics relating to natural gas, including the development of a new output producer price index (PPI).

The ABS sought feedback on the proposal to enhance natural gas price statistics. This information paper provides a response to this feedback, and an update on the progress of this proposal.
