News from APGA

The federal government’s Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development is consulting relevant stakeholders so that it can consider, analyse and report by 31 December 2017 on options for a corridor for a pipeline to supply aviation fuel to the airport site at Badgerys Creek in Sydney’s west. Officials have already held a meeting with APGA’s National Policy Manager Steve Davies.

The report will discuss fuel supply options for the Western Sydney Airport in general, including both on-road deliveries and a potential future pipeline to the airport. It will not identify a specific or preferred route for a pipeline corridor but is likely to recognise the requirements that should be considered for any pipeline in the future. It is likely that the airport will begin its operations, which is expected in 2026, with fuel deliveries on-road, but it may move to pipeline delivery when air traffic at the airport increases to the point where a pipeline becomes commercially viable.

The NSW Government’s Transport for NSW says that once airport operations ramp up to the level expected, the airport would require 43 B-double tanker aviation fuel deliveries per day, adding congestion to the urban road network.

The options report will assist Transport for NSW to prepare a detailed business case to identify and reserve a fuel pipeline corridor. Transport for NSW says it will consult with the community once more details are known about the likely approach and route of the pipeline corridor. If you have any questions about the options report, please contact Steve Davies on sdavies@apga.org.au
