DBCT Management’s 2019 draft access undertaking (2019 DAU) sets out the terms and conditions DBCT Management proposed for negotiating access to the Dalrymple Bay Coal Terminal (DBCT), after the 2017 access undertaking terminates in July 2021.
Interim draft decision published
We have made an interim draft decision to refuse to approve the pricing model, as proposed in DBCT Management’s 2019 DAU. Our reasons for this decision and how we consider DBCT Management could amend its pricing model in order to be appropriate to approve, are outlined in the report available for download below.
We invite stakeholders to comment on the matters discussed in our interim draft decision by Friday, 24 April 2020.
DBCT Management’s 2017 access undertaking notionally terminates on 1 July 2021.
We issued DBCT Management with an initial undertaking notice on 12 October 2017, requiring it to give us a draft access undertaking for the services declared under section 250(1)(c) of the QCA Act by 1 July 2019. This written notice was given in accordance with section 133(1)(b) of the QCA Act.
We published a statement of regulatory intent for the assessment of DBCT Management’s 2019 DAU, on 11 June 2019.
DBCT Management lodged its 2019 DAU on 1 July 2019 and we published it on 5 July 2019, inviting stakeholder submissions. We received three submissions during this first round of stakeholder consultation.
DBCT Management proposed a shift from the existing pricing model, in its 2019 DAU, about which stakeholders expressed concerns and disagreement. As this matter represents a key aspect of our assessment of the 2019 DAU, we considered it pragmatic to publish an interim draft decision to outline our views on the proposed pricing model.
We invited further submissions from stakeholders on matters relevant to the proposed interim draft decision and received a further three submissions.
We have made an interim draft decision to refuse to approve the 2019 DAU, based on our preliminary assessment of the proposed pricing model. We invite stakeholder submissions on this interim draft decision by Friday 24 April 2020.
