Since 1999, Mungalalu Truscott Airbase Pty Ltd (“MTAPL”) has overseen the exponential growth of Mungalalu Truscott Airbase (“MTA”) through investment in the development of MTA’s infrastructure and utilisation by customers from certain industries, particularly the oil and gas and tourism sectors. MTAPL has successfully run MTA for over 20 years, ensuring strong and sustainable social outcomes for the Wunambal Gaambera people and surrounding communities and MTAPL’s shareholders.
MTAPL has extensive experience in planning, delivering & operating regional airport infrastructure. Situated in a very remote location, MTAPL has deep expertise in delivering land, sea and air logistics services to oil and gas operators as well as to defence, customs and border protection agencies in the region.
The longstanding strong relationships that MTAPL has established with the oil and gas operators operating in the Timor Sea, such as Inpex, PTTEP, Jadestone, UPS and previously Woodside, are a testament to the great reputation the airport has for delivering a consistently high standard of service to a demanding sector, where safety is a critical factor in all operations.
MTAPL is the aerodrome operator of MTA, the largest all-weather air base in the far north Kimberley. MTA was given CASA registration R093 in April 2005.
Using MTA with its all-weather sealed runway provides significant operational and safety efficiencies for aviation operations in the Kimberley / Timor Sea area.
MTA complies with CASA’s Manual of Standards (MOS) 139 regulations and allows jets of up to a MOTW of 39T to land at the airbase.
As a result, MTA can handle jet traffic, making direct flights to and from state capitals a feasible option for oil and gas operators, as well as enabling emergency support services to be provided to offshore operations and the ability to facilitate convenient visits by company executives to offshore facilities.
