Anglo Coal and Mitsui applied for and were granted an extension of time to comply with certain ring fencing obligations for the Dawson Valley Pipeline. Subsequently they applied for a waiver of certain ring fencing obligations with respect to marketing staff and carrying out a related business. On 14 February 2007, the ACCC in its final decision approved the waiver of these particular ring fencing obligations.
Change of ownership of the Dawson Valley pipeline
The ownership of the Dawson Valley Pipeline changed on 1 July 2010. Due to the change in ownership and the resulting change in service providers, the ring fencing waivers which were approved by the ACCC in 2007 no longer apply.
