SYNERGY — PREMIER
COAL SUPPLY AGREEMENT
109. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the minister representing the Minister
I am asking this question on behalf
of Hon Peter Collier who is away on urgent parliamentary business. I refer to
Synergy's coal contract with Premier Coal.
(1) How many
tonnes of coal did Synergy take from Premier Coal for each of the years 2013–14,
2014–15, 2015–16, 2016–17 and 2017–18?
(2) How much coal has Synergy taken
in the current financial year?
(3) What is the
forecast tonnage of coal that Synergy expects to take from Premier Coal for
each of the years 2019–20, 2020–21 and 2021–22?
STEPHEN DAWSON replied:
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question. The following information has been provided to me
by the Minister for Energy.
has advised that the information sought is commercially sensitive information
that Synergy is required to keep confidential under the provisions of its coal
supply agreement with Premier Coal. However, Synergy has previously provided
information to the member for Bateman that, in large part, addresses the
questions asked. I refer the member to supplementary information A24 provided
to the member for Bateman following the Legislative Assembly estimates hearing
of 23 May 2018. It was inadvertently not attached to this document; however, my
office has sourced that information and I will table it now.
