Alcoa of Australia Limited Secures Long Term Energy Supply

Alumina Limited announced that Alcoa of Australia Limited has secured further long term energy supply for its Australian alumina refineries. This gas supply agreement secures the low cost position of AWAC's1 Australian alumina refining business. This agreement brings to almost 75% the amount of gas now secured by Alcoa of Australia to replace existing gas supply agreements which expire at the end of this decade. The impact of the gas supply agreement on AWAC's alumina production costs will not be material relative to the costs actually incurred in 2014. Alumina Limited believes this is an important initiative that secures AWAC's leading global position in alumina refining. The agreement is conditional on a consortium comprising Brookfield Asset Management Inc. and Macquarie Capital Group Limited completing the acquisition of Apache Energy Limited's Western Australian oil and gas assets in the Carnarvon Basin from Apache Corporation. As part of the gas supply arrangements, Alcoa of Australia will make a prepayment against contracted supply of $500 million. The prepayment will be payable by two installments. The first installment of $300 million is due on closing of the Apache asset sale, expected to be in May 2015. The second installment of $200 million is due in 2016.
