Woodside Says Court Ruling Will Not Delay Browse LNG (Australia)
Australian LNG giant Woodside Petroleum Ltd., said its Browse LNG project will not be delayed by a court ruling that land acquisition notices were illegal.
“We do not believe that this result will impact on the project schedule,” Woodside said in a statement.
Yesterday, Supreme Court of Western Australia, ruled that the State Government’s plan to acquire the land at James Price Point, in the Kimberley, was unlawful because the notices of intention did not contain descriptions.
The Browse LNG Development concept is to commercialise three gas and condensate fields, Brecknock, Calliance and Torosa, 400 km off the Kimberley coast.
Gas and liquids from these fields will be brought to an onshore LNG plant at the Western Australian Government’s Browse LNG Precinct, 60 km north of Broome.
