Gorgon marketing to affect WA gas price

An independent report prepared for the national competition watchdog has found that allowing joint marketing of gas from the Gorgon project would likely lead to higher prices for WA gas customers than if each partner was forced to market its share separat

I see two segments of this debate re joint marketing. 1. The domestic market should automatically benefit from the local resource. If gas is green enough for Gorgon to get all the approvals required environmentally then these green benefits should be locked in to allow the flow on environmental benefit to all of WA as an offset to the Gorgon Project. It is an asset that should be applied to benefit the entire country for domestic supply and vehicles. Has anyone looked into the environmental benefit if the majority of cars were run on gas and local supply was guaranteed for the life of supply. 2. If agreement to protect the local market could be achieved there would be no reason to object to joint marketing for the world market. I don't think there is a shortage of demand.

The developers want to obtain the best price for their product, so it only is common sense for them to go to market as a single entity. I think it reasonable to divide the partners. It's a bit of the old divide and rule. It may work. Even if it costs more. At least it will provide some work for more paper shuffle.

I agree with comments from Caroline, have you thought of doing consultancy work? I know of many you could educate. After all we are supposedly a gas rich state, so why can't we benefit environmentally from a healthy domestic supply.
