Senex Energy has struck its first domestic gas contract from Project Atlas.
The company has agreed to a domestic gas sales agreement with Queensland manufacturer CSR Limited for up to 3.25 PJ of gas.
Under the three-year agreement, Senex will supply CSR subsidiary CSR Building Products with 0.65 PJ of gas per year from 1 January 2020, with CSR having an option to extend the agreement by up to a further two years.
CSR will use the gas in its brick, plasterboard and insulation manufacturing plants, all three of which are situated in Queensland’s southeast.
Senex Managing Director and CEO Ian Davies said the company was proud to support local manufacturers.
“This agreement with CSR follows the Queensland Government’s policy to support new supplies of natural gas into the domestic market and this is a great outcome for Queensland,” he said.
“This gas sales agreement is one of many milestones to come as we deliver our east coast gas development projects.”
The gas will be supplied at the Wallumbilla Gas Hub in Queensland at a fixed price in line with market levels.
First gas sales from Project Atlas are expected to be delivered by the end of 2019.
