WICET creates opportunity for Glencore's Wandoan

Report summary

We have assessed projects at the Wiggins Island Coal Export Terminal (WICET) in Queensland, given the potential opportunity to secure spare port capacity at a large discount to the existing terminal handling charge.

Table of contents

    • WICET Overview
      • Mines and projects forecast to supply coal to WICET Stage 1
    • High port charges are crimping shippers' margins
    • WICET capacity likely to be significantly under-utilised until 2023
    • What will it take to fill up capacity at WICET?
    • A strategic early start at Wandoan could result in an incentive price as low as US$63/tonne for Wandoan
    • Development and marketing risks for Wandoan
    • With potential M&A on the table, is an early start Glencore's best option?
