Signs 9.85PJ Gas Supply Agreement
The agreement (including the obligation to supply gas) remains subject to satisfaction of certain conditions precedent, including execution of already negotiated gas transportation arrangements, by 31 May 2017 (unless extended by mutual agreement). The GSA was signed by Central Petroleum Mereenie Pty Ltd (a wholly owned subsidiary of Central) as trustee of the Central Petroleum Mereenie Unit Trust and EDL.
Negotiations have been underway for some time and became a priority after the National Market Reform Group decided to exclude the Amadeus and Carpentaria Pipelines from the COAG endorsed Vertigan reforms. The expectation of a GSA was taken into account by the Board in unanimously recommending the improved proposal received from Macquarie MPVD Pty Ltd announced to the ASX on 10 March 2017.
