APA has announced a new gas transportation agreement (GTA) has been executed with a Western Australian based gold mining company.
The GTA with Dacian Gold will enable APA to deliver gas to power Dacian’s Mt Morgans Gold Project, located approximately 750km northeast of Perth in the Goldfields region of Western Australia.
The GTA, with a term of 10.5 years, will underpin the construction of a four kilometer lateral from APA’s Eastern Goldfields Pipeline and associated above ground infrastructure at the mine site.
APA’s Managing Director, Mick McCormack said, “It is pleasing to connect a new customer to our interconnected infrastructure in the west.
“Dacian will be the fourth customer to connect onto our ‘Goldfields Grid’ since the commissioning of APA’s Eastern Goldfields Pipeline in 2015. Because of APA’s continued investment into this system, we can deliver safe and reliable energy to Dacian’s gold operations by constructing a relatively short four kilometer lateral.
“Gas will travel approximately 1,200km across four APA pipelines – the Goldfields Gas Pipeline, the Murrin Murrin Lateral, the Eastern Goldfields Pipeline and the new lateral.”
