Adani to take full ownership of Abbot Point

Sun Oct 16 20:12:04 CEST 2016 arnekiel

Mining company Glencore is to sell the shares in its subsidiary Abbot Point BulkCoal Pty Ltd (APB) to the Adani Group. Adani acquired the Abbot Point Terminal on a 99-year lease from the Queensland Government in 2011 and has since invested more than A$1.8bn (US$13.6m). APB has since had an operations and maintenance agreement with Adani to operate the terminal. Under the share sale deal, Adani’s Abbot Point Operations Pty Ltd (APO) will take over APB, albeit APB will continue to operate and maintain the terminal. Glencore says the ownership transfer will not impact on the day-to-day operations of the terminal and Glencore will continue supplying coal for export to Abbot Point from its open cut coal mines at Newlands and Collinsville. Completion of the sale is subject to receipt of regulatory approvals. http://www.portstrategy.com/news101/world/australasia/adani-to-take-full-ownership-of-abbot-point

India's Adani Buys Australian Port Operator

Wed Sep 21 10:16:07 CEST 2016 arnekiel

A unit of India's Adani Enterprises will buy the company that operates Australia's Abbot Point Coal Terminal from Glencore for A$19.25 million dollars ($14.52 million), ending a legal wrangle over control of the port. The statement from Adani and Glencore said Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone would purchase the port operator, Abbot Point BulkCoal Pty Ltd, pending regulatory approvals. Adani Enterprises, India's biggest private sector coal trader, acquired the Abbot Point Coal Terminal port from the Queensland government in 2011, considering it a key part of its plan to ship coal from Australia to India and for other exports. However, Glencore retained control of the actual operations of the port through its ownership of Abbot Point BulkCoal, sparking a legal dispute between the global miner and Adani that effectively will now end as the Indian company will assume full control of the port. http://www.maritime-executive.com/article/indias-adani-buys-australian-port-operator

Australia Approves Dredging for Controversial Coal Port Near Barrier Reef

Wed Dec 23 14:37:44 CET 2015 arnekiel

(Reuters) – Australia approved on Tuesday a controversial expansion of the Abbot Point coal terminal, which environmentalists fear will damage the Great Barrier Reef but supporters say is needed to protect the sector from decline. The expansion work will require dredging 1.1 million cubic metres of seabed near the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, which will then be disposed of on land to make way for what will become one of the world’s biggest export terminals for coal. Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt issued the approval only after reengineering reduced dredging by 97 percent from the original proposal, according to a statement from Hunt’s office. “All dredge material will be placed onshore on existing industrial land,” the spokesman said. The work still requires approval from the Queensland state government, which is awaiting assurances that a giant coal mine owned by Indian conglomerate Adani Enterprises will proceed to the construction phase. https://gcaptain.com/australia-approves-dredging-for-controversial-coal-port-near-barrier-reef/#.VnqjrRXNy9I
