The following tables list current tariffs for standard services available on APA pipelines.

All tariffs are current as at 1 July 2018 and are exclusive of GST.

Details of APA’s pricing methodology can be found here.

Firm transport capacity service terms

These terms are for standard long term firm transport capacity or reference services (as relevant) on APA pipelines. They are subject to available capacity.

Details of each of these services, including standard terms and conditions, can be found on the gas transmission services page, in the APA Standard Gas Transportation Agreement (SGTA) for the East Coast Grid and Central Region pipelines, and the SGTA for the West Coast Grid.

Non-standard transport services or alternative terms may be available by negotiation.

1 These are reference tariffs for firm reference services as set out in the relevant access arrangements for these pipelines.

2 The WGP tariff is expressed in AUD but is derived from an original contract tariff expressed in USD. The AUD tariff will fluctuate in line with foreign exchange movements. Prospective shippers on the WGP should contact APA for up-to-date tariff information for this pipeline.

Receipts from the NGP are dependent on the commissioning of the NGP, currently expected in late 2018.

Standalone compression services

Compression is either part of a transport service, or can be offered on a standalone basis. Relevant tariffs for standalone compression are set out below.

$0.1795

Tariffs based on foundation shipper arrangements for compression services, determined in competitive circumstances.

Use this matrix to determine whether you will require compression as a standalone service, or as part of a transport service on the SWQP or MSP.

Service duration

Firm service

All firm transport and compression services are offered over four terms.

Relevant tariffs to apply to different terms of firm contracting will be determined using the following formula...

       Relevant Firm Service Tariff = (Long Term Firm tariff) x (1+X)

...where X is the adjustment value outlined below in respect of the relevant term for contracting the firm service.

Tariff rules, charging structures and X values are set out below.

The X values have been derived from the average aggregated load factor for APA pipelines to determine a long term firm equivalent tariff, including consideration of the risk of providing the firm service over shorter terms.

Long-term

Long term firm tariff is available for shippers contracting firm capacity on a pipeline for a term equal to or greater than 12 months.

Capacity charge on reserved Firm MDQ ($/GJ/day of MDQ)  

Short-term 

Short term firm tariff is available to shippers contracting firm capacity on a pipeline for a term of less than 12 months.

Capacity charge on reserved Firm MDQ ($/GJ/day of MDQ)  0.3

APA may decline a request to reserve capacity for a shorter term where to do so would materially reduce the ability for another shipper to reserve longer term firm capacity relevant to the pipeline.

APA will consider the opportunity cost of short term firm capacity requests that relate to the reservation of capacity that is more than 1 month in the future.

Not available on a single day, day ahead basis.

Minimum bill rules apply.

Day-ahead

Day-ahead capacity is available for shippers with a day-ahead firm capacity facility in their GTA.

This facility allows shippers to reserve firm capacity on a day-ahead basis.

Day-ahead firm capacity facility can be included in a GTA with no advance firm capacity reservation (0 MDQ).

Minimum bill rules apply.
Within-day

Within-day capacity is available for shippers with a within-day firm
capacity facility in their GTA.

This facility allows shippers to nominate for firm capacity after the nomination deadline for the relevant pipeline subject to SGTA intraday nomination requirements.

Within-day firm capacity is firm if scheduled.

Charge on delivered quantity ($/GJ/day) up to scheduled firm service quantity  0.6

Within-day firm capacity facility can be included in a GTA with no firm capacity reservation (0 MDQ).

Minimum bill rules apply.

Interruptible service

Interruptible services are only available while the pipeline is fully contracted for the corresponding firm service, and are subject to available capacity. All Interruptible transport and compression services are available over two terms.

Relevant tariffs to apply will be determined using the following formula...

         Relevant Interruptible Tariff = (Long Term Firm tariff) x (1 + X)

...where X is the adjustment value outlined below in respect of the relevant term for contracting the firm service.

Tariff rules, charging structures and X values are set out below.

The X value for interruptible services reflects an estimate of the risk of interruption.
