Shares / Stock Code


Stock Exchange / Sharemarket


Ethane Pipeline Income Fund (EPX) is a pipeline infrastructure fund. The underlying core asset is the 1,375km high pressure ethane pipeline, which was purpose built to transport ethane from the gas processing facility in Moomba in South Australia to Sydney, NSW. Ethane is supplied to Qenos, Australia's sole producer of polyethylene. Qenos holds over 50% market share of the Australian polyethylene market. EPX is headquartered in Sydney, Australia.

In April 2008, Mariner Financial Limited announced the sale of its remaining units in the Mariner Pipeline Income Fund to APA Group. The manger of the Fund is APA Group.

The performance of the fund and its ability to pay distributions is reliant on the performance of a single asset, the pipeline. The fund's only significant source of revenue is from transporting ethane through the pipeline. Currently the only commercially viable source of ethane available to the Botany Plant is from the Moomba Facility via the pipeline.

EPX's major shareholders/customers include institutional and retail investors. EPX competes with other investment companies and funds that provide a similar risk and return profile.
