corporate costs

Corporate costs for the financial year increased by $13.3 million over the previous corresponding period to $86.7 million (FY2015: $73.6 million).

This increase was primarily due to a number of one-off items including costs related to APA's involvement in the Northern Territory's NEGI process, APA's unsuccessful bid for the Iona Gas Storage Facility, costs incurred in relation to a number of ongoing governmental enquiries into the gas market as well as an externally facilitated strategy and planning review undertaken during the year.
