PERTH, Australia – Woodside Energy has published its final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the proposed offshore Browse to North West Shelf (NWS) gas project off north-western Australia.
It includes responses to comments received during an eight-week public consultation process that finished in February 2020.
The Australian Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water (DCCEEW) will now prepare its recommendation report and submit this to Minister.
Woodside plans to send feed gas from fields in the offshore Browse Basin for processing at the NWS Project’s Karratha gas plant, with production capacity of 11.4 MM metric tons/yr of LNG, LPG and domestic gas.
Meg O'Neill, CEO of Woodside, said: “The final EIS provides comprehensive detail of potential environmental impacts, proposed mitigations and management measures.”
Work continues in support of progress towards the FEED phase.
The Browse joint venture has been looking to monetize 13.9 tcf of dry gas and 390 MMbbl of condensate in the offshore Brecknock, Calliance and Torosa fields.
