A Strategic Assessment of the Compatibility of Petroleum Industry Activities with the Environmental Values and Cultural Uses of the Shark Bay World Heritage Area (Bulletin 1115)

The EPA has been requested by the Western Australian Minister for the Environment to provide advice under section 16(e) of the Environmental Protection Act 1986 on a policy framework for petroleum exploration and development within the Shark Bay World Heritage Property. The request arises out of the 1997 agreement between the State and Commonwealth governments on the administrative arrangements for the Shark Bay World Heritage Property.

This strategic advice was published as Bulletin 1115.
