Ongoing Tenure Secured for Port Waratah’s Carrington Terminal

Port Waratah Coal Services announce today an extension to the Carrington Terminal lease from 2024 to the end of 2031.

The decision to continue operations at Carrington aligns with Port Waratah’s expectations of coal industry demand, particularly from South-East Asia, where demand for high-quality Hunter Valley Coal remains strong.

This announcement supports the Hunter Valley coal industry, local jobs and the regional economy and community.

CEO of Port Waratah, Hennie du Plooy, said the Carrington Terminal remained a key element of Port Waratah’s operations.

“It is critical to being able to meet our customers’ needs for terminal capacity and service flexibility now and into the future,” Mr du Plooy said.

“Our expectation of the future demand for terminal services is also consistent with the NSW Government’s policy position, Strategic Statement on Coal Exploration and Mining in NSW, which recognises that coal exports have an important role to play in NSW while there is strong global demand for the product.”
