The company operates its business in six segments: Hardware; Energy, including Coal and Gas and power; Industrial and safety; Insurance; Chemicals and fertilizers; and other activities. Hardware Segment Bunnings: Bunnings operates as a retailer of home and garden improvement products and building materials, supplying the do-it-yourself customers, builders and contractors in Australia and New Zealand. Bunnings operates approximately 210 stores across all states and territories of Australia and both islands in New Zealand. WA Salvage: WA Salvage Pty, Ltd specializes in selling a discounted building materials and bargain variety merchandise and purchases products in bulk, including downgraded, superseded and liquidated stock. The company operates 125 Warehouses, 85 Traditional stores, and 18WA Salvage stores. Energy Segment The company’s Energy segment comprises three coal businesses, three gas businesses, a power business and support activities. The coal interests are the Curragh mine in Queensland’s Bowen Basin (coking coal for export markets and steam coal for domestic markets), the Premier Coal mine at Collie in Western Australia’s south-west (steam coal for domestic markets), and a 40% interest in the Bengalla mine in the Hunter Valley of New South Wales (steam coal for both export and domestic markets). Energy’s gas and power businesses are Wesfarmers Kleenheat Gas Pty Ltd (LPG distribution and marketing), Wesfarmers LPG Pty Ltd (LPG production) a 40 per cent interest in Air Liquide WA Pty Ltd (industrial and medical gases) and Energy Generation Pty Ltd (power generation for regional areas). Curragh, Queensland: Wesfarmers operates the Curragh mine situated 200 kilometres west of Rockhampton in Queensland’s Bowen Basin. The mine produces around seven million tonnes of coking and steam coal annually. Export coking coal is transported 300 kilometres by rail to the Port of Gladstone where it is shipped to customers in Japan, South Korea, South-East Asia, and Europe. Curragh’s steam coal is produced for domestic power generation and transported by rail directly to both the Stanwell Power Station near Rockhampton and the Gladstone Power Station. Wesfarmers is working on the development of Curragh North, which would double the recoverable coal reserves available. Premier, Western Australia: The Premier Coal open-cut mine near Collie, 200 kilometres south of Perth, produces around 3.5 million tonnes of coal per annum. The coal is mainly sold under long-term contract to its major customer, the state government-owned Western Power, for domestic power generation. Premier Coal also supplies the mineral sands processing industry in Western Australia. Premier Coal’s product is low in ash and sulphur content and is methane-free, providing a comparable emissions profile to that of natural gas in Western Australia. Bengalla, New South Wales: Wesfarmers has a 40% interest in the Bengalla open-cut coal mining joint venture, situated at Muswellbrook in the Hunter Valley in New South Wales. Coal and Allied manages the operation, which is capable of producing approximately six million tons of steam coal for both domestic and export purposes.
