Call on EPA to withdraw new Woodside
Conservation groups have written to the EPA* requesting that Woodside’s application be withdrawn or rejected because the company has clearly failed to comply with the EPA’s requirements as set out in its recent strategic assessment report on the proposed multi-user gas hub.
"In Report 1444 the EPA stated clearly and repeatedly that Woodside would need to provide detailed environmental information and show how they consulted with stakeholders before making this derived proposal request and they have failed to do so," said Mr Robertson.
"The EPA has no choice but to withdraw the obviously rushed and incomplete proposal from advertising until Woodside complies with the EPA's previous ruling," Mr Robertson said.
Environs Kimberley Director Martin Pritchard said that WA Premier Colin Barnett had promised in Parliament in August 2011 that Woodside’s foundation project would have to undergo a full environmental assessment process.
