James Price Point decision not over yet


As stated in a previous post, the writing was on the wall a long time ago, it took some time for decision-makers to grasp the reality about the economics of the James Price Point gas hub location.

But the case is not over yet.

The WA state government has now insisted that the court case should be heard immediately. This case has been initiated by the Wilderness Society and Goolarabooloo Traditional Custodian Richard Hunter against the WA Environment Minister and the WA EPA, over the way that the gas hub was approved.

The Wilderness Society states that the WA government wants …

"to secure approvals and access for the JPP site so they can still use it for a potential supply base for offshore gas operations.

Our landmark case will therefore be heard by the Chief Justice of the WA Supreme Court from June 4-6."


Although the Woodside consortium has shifted its strategy and planning to a less costly offshore gas processing facility, there is the potential for a smaller industrial hub to be approved at James Price Point. This is obviously what the WA government would like to see happen.

So, we'll have to wait and see what the outcome of the court case is. More to come on that.
