Browse LNG Precinct

Project
Proposal description: 

This report provides the Browse Delegates’ (the Delegates) advice and recommendations to the Minister for Environment on the strategic proposal by the Minister for State Development to construct a Common User LNG Precinct at James Price Point in the Kimberley to process gas from the Browse Basin. The Delegates were tasked with assessing the proposal after the Supreme Court of Western Australia found the Environmental Protection Authority’s July 2012 report was invalid and that there had been no valid assessment under the Environmental Protection Act 1986. The EPA, with the Minister for Environment’s approval, delegated its powers to the three delegates.
