WESTRALIAN Sands subsidiary Westlime (WA) Ltd secured a crucial gas supply for its new lime plant near Dongara from The Australian Gas Light Co, this week 10 years ago. AGL earlier announced its plans to construct a new 16 kilometre, 100 millimetre pipeline lateral, before sourcing the gas from a producer in the Canarvon Basin region and using the Dampier to Bunbury gas pipeline. The gas deliveries were timed to arrive in time for the start-up of operations at Westlime in early 1997. This was first time AGL was to wholesale gas in the WA market and the first time it had built and owned WA pipeline infrastructure.
