12/06/2018 - AGL Announcement

Today AGL and the Port of Hastings Development Authority (the Port) entered into an agreement that will soon see the Port commence work remediating Crib Point Berth No.2 (the Berth).

Port of Hastings CEO Malcolm Geier is looking forward to working with AGL as work on the project approvals and feasibility studies continue.

“The Port team and myself look forward to working with AGL and the community on the next phase of what is an exciting project for the Port and Crib Point.”

The project requires a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) to be continuously moored at Crib Point Berth No.2. “The agreement signed today will enable the Port to commence work remediating Berth 2 at Crib Point ahead of a final investment decision being made by AGL in the 2019 financial year.”

“The Australian Energy Market Operator’s March 2018 Victorian Gas Planning Report highlights a potential shortfall in gas supply during peak gas demand in 2021 and a potential shortfall in total supply in 2022. Remediation work needs to start now so that, should AGL obtain the required project approvals and make the decision to proceed, Berth No.2 is available in time to meet this forecast shortfall.”

Mr Geier noted that the Port was fortunate to be in a position to be able to assist AGL in securing Victoria’s gas supply needs. “The Port is well placed with natural deep water channels and existing infrastructure available to facilitate projects such as AGL’s.  The prospect of the Port playing a part in AGL’s plans to secure the State’s gas supply needs and provide additional competition in the domestic market is exciting.”

The Port of Hastings Development Authority is preparing to commence remediation works on Berth 2 at the southern end of the Crib Point Jetty.  The work is being undertaken now to ensure Berth 2 is ready in time for the AGL Gas Import Jetty project, should the project proceed.  If AGL does not proceed with the project, Berth 2 will be available for use by other port users.

Residents and users of Western Port can expect to see remediation activity on the jetty site commencing May 2018.

Works at the site will include:

  • Establishment of a site compound;

  • Securing the site with new fencing;

  • Some vegetation clearing;

  • Repairs to concrete on the jetty, pylons, mooring dolphins and pipe racks; and 

  • Replacement of the Pier head.

Residents can expect to see an increase in  vehicle movements along The Esplanade during these works.  Construction activities will occur between:

  • Monday to Friday - 7am to 6pm; and

  • Saturday - 7am to 1pm.                       

The Port of Hastings Development Authority’s works are expected to take between 7 and 9 months, commencing in May 2018 and ending in January 2019.
