On 16 June 2017, we approved DBCT Management’s May 2017 incremental expansion study DAAU and amendments to the 2017–18 regulated asset base, revenues and tariffs based on $8.8 million in incremental expansion study costs.

May 2017 incremental expansion study DAAU

On 16 June 2017, we approved DBCT Management (DBCTM)’s May 2017 incremental expansion study DAAU.

We amended the 2017–18 regulated asset base (RAB), revenues and tariffs to reflect $8.785 million in incremental expansion study costs in respect of the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal (DBCT).

On the same date, we also approved DBCTM’s annual revenue requirement roll-forward for 2017–18 and the change in terminal infrastructure charge associated with the reference tonnage review event submitted as part of the roll-forward application.

Our decision is available below.

On 23 May 2017, DBCT Management submitted a draft amending access undertaking (DAAU) seeking approval to amend the 2017–18 regulated asset base, revenues and tariffs based on $8.8 million in incremental expansion study costs (May 2017 incremental expansion study DAAU).

We began an investigation to decide whether to approve, or refuse to approve, the DAAU. The DAAU and related material, including a mark-up to the draft submission made by DBCTM which was the basis of our consultant’s (Flagstaff Consulting) draft report, are available below.

Stakeholders were invited to comment on the DAAU and Flagstaff’s draft report.

We did not receive any submissions from stakeholders.
