Application for 15 year no-coverage determination - Northern Goldfields Interconnect Gas Pipeline (Draft recommendation)

On 18 October 2023, the Council released its Draft Recommendation on APA NGI Pty Ltd’s application for a 15 year no-coverage determination for the Northern Goldfields Interconnect (NGI) gas pipeline. 

Having considered the application and having received no submissions on it, the Council proposed to recommend to the relevant Minister that he make a 15-year no-coverage determination in respect of the NGI. 

Further, the Council has determined that the NGI is a transmission pipeline, which is situated wholly within Western Australia. As a result, the relevant Minister for the purposes of the application is the Minister for Mines and Petroleum; Energy; Hydrogen Industry; Industrial Relations in Western Australia, the Hon. W Johnston MLA.

The Council’s reasoning for its Draft Recommendation is available below.

Interested parties were invited to make written submissions on the Draft Recommendation before 5.00pm (AEDT) on Monday 13 November 2023.
