Senex, Alinta Sign Oz Gas Deal
Australian oil and gas explorer Senex Energy has signed a domestic sales agreement with energy wholesaler and retailer Alinta Energy to supply 4 petajoules (PJ) of natural gas over two years starting January 1 2021, it said on October 26.
The gas will be supplied at the Wallumbilla gas hub in Queensland at a fixed price in line with current term contract market levels, Senex said. Alinta is Australia’s fourth-largest energy retailer.
“Senex continues to work with potential customers to supply natural gas that will support Australia’s gas-led recovery and creation of sustainable jobs for Queenslanders,” Senex CEO Ian Davies. “Alinta Energy adds to our growing portfolio of domestic commercial and industrial customers, including CSR, Orora, Visy Glass, CleanCo Queensland and Southern Oil Refining.”
“These long-term and mutually beneficial relationships reinforce Senex’s importance as a material supplier of natural gas to the east coast market,” Mr Davies said.
Senex was recently awarded new Atlas gas acreage in a tender held by the Queensland government.
