Senex Energy and Adbri have signed a long-term domestic gas sales agreement to supply up to 11 petajoules of natural gas to support Adbri’s South Australian manufacturing operations to 2030.

Under the seven-year agreement, Senex will supply natural gas from January 2023 to Adbri at the Moomba Gas Hub at a fixed price.

Managing director and chief executive officer Ian Davies said Santos was proud to supply Adbri, who are a leading cement manufacturer in the Australian market.

“Senex is delighted to welcome Adbri as a new long-term customer into our growing portfolio of leading manufacturers and power generators, broadening our reach throughout the east coast of Australia,” he said.

Adbri CEO Nick Miller welcomed the new gas supply agreement with Senex, stating it helps underpin its low-cost and low-carbon manufacturing operating in SA.

“I commend the Senex team for its responsive, flexible and open approach to meeting our energy needs. We look forward to continuing to build our new relationship,” he said.
