QR, Curragh seal coal deal

QR NATIONAL has signed a new long-term haulage contract with Wesfarmers Curragh for the transport of coal from the Curragh mine to the new Wiggins Island Coal Export Terminal.

The new long-term contract will see up to 1.5Mtpa of coal hauled.

From mid-2014, QR National will be contracted to haul up to 10Mtpa of coal from the expanded Curragh mine to ports near Gladstone.

QR National has an existing long-term coal haulage contract with Wesfarmers for up to 8.5Mtpa from Curragh to RG Tanna Coal Terminal and Barney Point.

The haulage contract is the second secured by QR National for tonnages into WICET, the other contract being with Aquila Washpool for 1.6Mtpa.

QR National Managing Director and CEO Lance Hockridge said the company was focused on performance-based contracts that were underpinned by reliability, certainty of supply and safety.
