The paper will discuss the challenges and key success factors needed to development and operate a natural gas distribution network. This discussion will include the development of the regulatory model — performance-based vs. prescriptive. It will examine the development of the actual regulations, compliance and oversight strategies. In addition the paper will discuss the various existing regulatory and standards models throughout the world and how the best fit components were incorporated into the model. The paper will examine the incorporation of a Quality Management System integrated by an Integrity Management Program and a Quality Services Program. In addition it will highlight the social economic and environmental challenges encounter implementing a “culture of gas” in a developing country.
