After the initial two-year term, the two companies have agreed to a mechanism that could see the deal extended by up to six years for 6.6 PJ of gas, resulting in a possible overall supply of up to 9.9 PJ.
The deal is the second domestic gas contract for Project Atlas, after Senex finalised an agreement with manufacturer CSR Limited announced in April.
Senex Managing Director and CEO Ian Davies said gas from the deal would go to manufacturing plants in Queensland that employed more than 3,000 people.
“This gas sales agreement is innovative in its flexibility, allowing material additional quantities of natural gas to be supplied to Orora in the future,” he said.
“With two gas sales agreements now secured and drilling to start later this month, Senex is accelerating rapidly towards first gas from Project Atlas at the end of this year,”
Gas from the agreement will be supplied at the Wallumbilla Gas Hub at a fixed price in line with current market levels.
