Compensation Principles

Compensation Principles banner

AGL has developed standard compensation principles to provide fair and equitable compensation to landholders. The level of compensation will reflect the type of activity proposed, the location of the project as well as the value and agricultural productivity of the land.

In working with landholders to develop an Access and Compensation Agreement, AGL will pay for:

  • landholder’s time;
  • reasonable legal costs;
  • initial works payments for disturbance (eg, construction noise) and our activities; and
  • annual compensation for landholder time and “rental” for the use of land for wells, pipelines, access roads and other infrastructure.

Access Arrangement and Compensation Agreement

An Access Arrangement and Compensation Agreement is the written legal agreement between AGL and a landholder to access land for gas exploration or production. The Agreement will include things like:

  • Compensation;
  • Conditions of access including hours of operation;
  • Responsible person;
  • Rehabilitation;
  • Insurance; and
  • Notification and time periods for access.
