Subsea 7 proposes to construct and operate an onshore pipeline fabrication facility at Lots 233 and 1586 to the east of Minilya-Exmouth Road, Learmonth, approximately 35km south of the Exmouth Townsite.
A pipeline bundle co-locates a number of services within a single pipeline for use in the development of offshore gas fields.
The proposal consists of an onshore pipeline bundle fabrication site and associated infrastructure, two bundle tracks (approximately 10km in length) along which the bundles will be constructed and launched from a bundle launch way which crosses the beach and extends into the subtidal zone at Heron Point in the Exmouth Gulf. Once launched the bundles will be towed offshore along a pre-determined route.
Bundle launch activities are expected to result in 2-days offshore activity per launch in the Heron Point and Exmouth Gulf area with a maximum of 3 launches per annum.
It has come to the EPA’s attention that due to an error, notifications were not sent to notify subscribers that the Environmental Scoping Document for the Learmonth Bundle Site has been approved and is now available on the EPA’s website. Please note that the Environmental Scoping Document is made available for information purposes only.
The next opportunity for public input in the assessment process will occur when the Public Environmental Review Document is released for an 8 week public review period.
The final approved Environmental Scoping Document is available to be viewed on this page below, in: 3.Assessment > Scoping.
