LEADING gas pipeline operator APA Group has executed an agreement to extend and expand services to an existing customer in the Goldfields region, Western Australia. Under this contract, gas will travel over 1200km across APA’s West Coast Grid.

The contract represents an extension and expansion of existing services and is expected to generate approximately $45 million of revenue, of which approximately $21 million is renewal revenues, over the five year contract period from mid November 2018. This contract is the most significant of three contracts that APA has entered into, to support the expansion of the Murrin Murrin Lateral.

“Over a number of years now, APA has invested significant amounts of capital in building our Western Australian assets in order to provide a reliable and safe energy delivery platform for our mining customers,” APA managing director Mick McCormack said.

“Continuing to invest in our asset footprint to enable more certainty and growth opportunities for our customers is very satisfying as an infrastructure owner and operator.

“We have been working closely with all of our customers to provide cost effective services and the flexibility required to help them with their energy needs. We continue to look at ways of adding value to the services we provide to our customers to help them optimise their energy needs.”
