APA Group (APA) is a major ASX-listed gas transportation business with interests in energy infrastructure across mainland Australia, including over 14,000 kilometres of natural gas pipelines, gas storage facilities and a wind farm. APA is Australia's largest transporter of natural gas, delivering approximately half of Australia's annual gas use through its infrastructure.
APA also has investments in other energy infrastructure through its minority interest in companies, including Envestra, the Ethane Pipeline Income Fund, Energy Infrastructure Investments, EII2 and GDI (EII) which owns the Allgas Gas Network. APA’s involvement also extends to the provision of commercial, accounting, corporate operations and maintenance services to most of these entities.
APA has an internalised management structure with direct operational control over its assets and no fee leakage. APA employs over 1,500 people, who perform all commercial, regulatory, government and stakeholder-related functions, as well as the day-to-day operations and maintenance.
APA generates strong and secure cash flow from contractual and regulatory arrangements on its assets.
As Australia’s leading gas transportation infrastructure business, APA is well positioned to benefit from the forecasted future growth of Australia’s gas market.
APA’s key strategy remains unchanged - to grow its core business of gas infrastructure profitably and sustainably, and further enhancing the value of its assets through related projects and investments. APA will do this by:
Enhancing APA's portfolio of gas infrastructure assets in Australia's growing energy market;
Capturing revenues and operational synergies;
Facilitating the development of gas related projects that enhance APA's infrastructure portfolio;
Pursuing opportunities that leverage APA's knowledge and skills base; and
Strengthening its financial capability.
APA is a stapeled trust comprised of the Australian Pipeline Trust and APT Investment Trust.
