Mortlake Acquisition

Date: 18 August 2016
SEA Gas’ related entity SEA Gas (Mortlake), has today successfully closed the purchase of the Mortlake Pipeline from Origin Energy.
The Mortlake Pipeline, which will continue to be operated by SEA Gas, supplies gas to Origin’s Mortlake Power Station in Victoria.  Origin has committed to long-term gas transportation and storage services on the pipeline.
SEA Gas (Mortlake) is a partnership jointly owned by SEA Gas partners (APA Group & REST). SEA Gas will provide all corporate and marketing support to this partnership.
The Mortlake Pipeline acquisition is earnings accretive to the SEA Gas business and provides opportunity to further enhance service offerings in western Victoria.



SEA Gas and Epic Energy are pleased to announce that South Australia’s energy backbone has now been enhanced with the interconnection of the Moomba to Adelaide Pipeline (MAP) and the SEA Gas pipeline in mid-2015; allowing gas to flow from the SEA Gas pipeline to the MAP.

The state now has an energy backbone running through it that will enable gas to be delivered from multiple supply sources to all parts of the state and beyond.

The MAP traverses a roughly North-South direction through the state, while SEA Gas enters diagonally through the state’s South-East.  Both pipelines transport natural gas, a fuel that can be burnt in power stations with half of the CO2 emissions and none of the particulate matter produced by coal-fired power stations. Gas is a fuel that also has application to industrial and commercial enterprises as well as to domestic consumers for heating water and homes.
