5. The majority of the revenues to be received over 20 years from the foundation contracts on the Wallumbilla Gladstone Pipeline will be received in US dollars. The March 2015 US 144A Notes (maturing in 2025 and 2035), EUR MTN (maturing in 2027) and GBP MTN (maturing in 2030) were retained in or swapped into US dollar denominated debt obligations at issuance. These have been translated to Australian dollars at the prevailing rate at inception (US 144A Notes at AUD/USD=0.7879, EUR MTN and GBP MTN at AUD/USD=0.7772) and are being managed as a 'designated hedge' with the highly probable Wallumbilla Gladstone Pipeline US dollar revenues.
