Access to Melbourne Terminal facilities
Mobil imports fuel into Melbourne utilising the Gellibrand Wharf and Holden Dock.
Holden Dock can currently cater for ships up to 12.1m draught while Gellibrand wharf can accommodate ships up to 14.7m draught.
Access to use Mobil’s infrastructure and pipelines at Gellibrand Wharf, pipelines connecting Gellibrand Wharf to the Mobil Melbourne Terminal, and fixtures at the Mobil Melbourne Terminal may be available to Third Parties on reasonable commercial terms (“Access Terms”).
The Access Terms will be negotiated on a case-by-case basis and will be structured assuming an economically efficient operation of the Mobil Melbourne Terminal, including pipelines connecting Gellibrand Pier.
Access Terms will have regard to principles including:
a) ensuring the safe operation of the Mobil Melbourne Terminal including pipelines connecting Gellibrand Wharf;
b) ensuring strict product quality controls are maintained;
c) promoting efficient operation of, use of and investment in the Mobil Melbourne Terminal, including pipelines connecting Gellibrand Wharf;
d) the promotion of additional volumes through Port of Melbourne; and
e) generating expected revenue that allows recovery of efficient costs and provides a fair and reasonable return on investment.
If no commercial agreement on Access Terms can be reached a Third Party Access Seeker can follow the dispute resolution process set out below:
a) the Chief Executive Officer or an authorised senior representative of each of Mobil and the Third Party Access Seeker must meet to try to resolve any dispute; and
b) failing resolution under (a) above, either party may refer the dispute to an independent party for mediation.
