IVT UPDATE

IVT UPDATE

As at 12/01/17 the IVT balance was still 100,000ML meaning intervalley trade from the Murrumbidgee to the Murray is still closed. (Click here to view IVT balance online)

The MDBA in their River Murray System Annual Operating Plan End October 2016 Update published 18th November 2016, on page 8, spoke of current planning calling on 100GL from the Murrumbidgee between January and May 2017, which would cause the IVT balance to be lowered, possibly to zero and open trade from the Murrumbidgee to the Murray(Click here to view the River Murray system annual operating plan End October 2016 update).

TEMPORARY WATER VALUES – CURRENT SALES

Murrumbidgee: $35 to $39/ML.

NSW Murray: $70 to $77/ML.

Victorian Murray: $70 to $78/ML.

Temporary prices in the Murrumbidgee are back to levels seen in the spring when the rain appeared unlikely to stop long enough for rice and cotton planting to occur. With a $30/ML price difference when intervalley trade opens Murrumbidgee values will rise and Murray values fall to find a middle ground assuming trade stays open for any length of time.

I feel trade will be opened and shut before most people hear about it.

The MDBA report also mentioned drawing on the Menindee Lakes storages to run the Darling River and the Murray River below Wentworth (Page 7).

This has been recently announced. (Click here to view the MDBA Media Release).

WHEN WILL IVT OPEN?

The MDBA report has outlined their intentions regarding IVT opening. We will only know the exact date after it has happened. Further information may be made available in the MDBA weekly update published on Fridays (To subscribe to weekly update, click here).

All the above information points to intervalley trade opening at some stage this season, however there are no guarantees.

If trade does open, there will be a stampede to take advantage of higher temporary prices on the Murray and intervalley trade will close very quickly.

If you wish to participate in intervalley trade, please contact me to make arrangements now so we can lodge a trade form immediately when trade opens. 

NOTE TO TEMPORARY BUYERS

There are currently sellers in the Murrumbidgee Valley at $35 - $40 /ML. The lowest prices seen for quite a while. Prices will only stay low while intervalley trade is closed. It may be worth considering purchasing water now for pre-watering or to fill storages later on. 

CARRYOVER SPACE

Buyers are currently offering $60 /ML for carryover capacity in the Murrumbidgee Valley - including MIA and CICL.

PERMANENT WATER - MURRUMBIDGEE VALLEY

High Security

Buyers @ $3500 /ML - few sellers

General Security

Buyers @ $1400 /ML
Sellers @ $1500 /ML


To discuss these or any other water matter please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.

ALLOCATION ANNOUNCEMENT - 1ST NOVEMBER 2016

01-Nov-2016 Allocation Announcement

NSW Murray

NSW Murray General Security

increases to 72% of entitlement

NSW Murray High Security

remains at 97% of entitlement

Murrumbidgee

Murrumbidgee General Security

increases to 76% of entitlement

Murrumbidgee High Security

remains at 95% of entitlement
Murrumbidgee General Security allocation increases by 5% to 76% of entitlement. Continuing rainfall has seen storages remain effectively full and irrigation demand is minimal. Supplementary access has been continuous since the start of the water year; however regulated water delivery conditions will return as flood waters continue to recede.

NSW Murray General Security allocation has increased by 9% to 72% of entitlement. The increase is underpinned by improvement in storage at Menindee Lakes and Dartmouth Dam. 

The next allocation announcement will be 15th November 2016.

ALLOCATION ANNOUNCEMENT - 17TH OCTOBER

17-Oct-2016 Allocation Announcement

NSW Murray

NSW Murray General Security

increases to 63% of entitlement

NSW Murray High Security

remains at 97% of entitlement

Murrumbidgee

Murrumbidgee General Security

increases to 71% of entitlement

Murrumbidgee High Security

remains at 95% of entitlement

Murrumbidgee General Security allocation has increased by 10% to 71% of entitlement. Now that general security allocation has increased beyond 70%, carryover in accounts will start to boost allocations because individual account limits, 100% entitlement in the Murrumbidgee, are being reached. In other words, those with maximum carryover (30%) cannot benefit from further allocation improvement and their forfeited water is allocated to others.

NSW Murray General Security allocation has increased by 10% to 63% of entitlement. Above average rainfall and wet catchment conditions continue to provide steady system inflows and storage improvements. Now that general security allocation has increased beyond 60%, carryover in accounts will start to boost allocations because individual account limits, 110% entitlement in the NSW Murray, are being reached. In other words, those with maximum carryover (50%) cannot benefit from further allocation improvement. This forfeiture of water from full accounts means that those with little or no carryover benefit the most from further resource improvements.

The next allocation announcement will be 1st November 2016.

NSW Murray High Security

remains at 97% of entitlement

Murrumbidgee

Murrumbidgee General Security

remains at 61% of entitlement

Murrumbidgee High Security

Future resource improvements can now accrue to general security entitlement holders. 

NSW Murray General Security allocation has increased by 11% to 53% of entitlement. Above average rainfall and wet catchment conditions continue to provide steady system inflows and storage improvements.
