Parliament: 41 Session: 1


564. Hon Dr STEVE THOMAS to the minister representing the Minister for State Development, Jobs and Trade:

I refer to the invocation of force majeure by Griffin Coal on 21 July 2021 as identified by question without notice 378 answered on 4 August 2021.

(1) Has the application of force majeure declared by Griffin Coal on 21 July 2021 been lifted?

(2) If yes to (1), on what date was the force majeure lifted, and on what date was coal supply to customers recommenced?

(3) What is the current volumetric level of supply of coal from Griffin Coal?

(4) Has the volumetric supply of coal to customers returned to the same level as prior to Griffin's declaration of force majeure?


I thank the member for the question.

(1)–(3) Griffin Coal has advised that it was able to partially recommence its obligations to its customers from 15 August 2021 by delivering its daily coal requirement.

(4) No.
