Access to capacity

The WICET Terminal Access Policy sets out the rules for applying for, allocating, managing and expanding capacity at the WICET Terminal.

The Access Policy is a voluntary access regime, agreed between WICET and the State of Queensland in 2010.

A 'Gladstone Coal Producer' is any actual or potential coal producer which holds a specified type of mining tenure in an area that has, or potentially has, rail transport connections to the Port of Gladstone.

Any Gladstone Coal Producer may apply for capacity at the Terminal.

Long term capacity rights are allocated through Take or Pay Agreements between WICET and Gladstone Coal Producers. In some circumstances, capacity may also be made available on a short term basis.

The Access Policy includes the Capacity Management Principles which must be satisfied before WICET makes available capacity at the Terminal.
