Kimberley Gas Project

kimberley LNGThe State Government of Western Australia is developing a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Precinct in the Kimberley to enable processing of natural gas from the offshore Browse Basin. The proposed Browse LNG Development is a joint venture comprising Woodside, BHP Billiton, BP, Chevron and Shell. Woodside is the largest interest-holder and operator of the permits. As operator Woodside is responsible for the planning and day to day operations in connection with the Browse LNG Development.

In April 2009 Woodside, together with the State Government and the Kimberley Land Council on behalf of Traditional Owners, signed a Heads of Agreement related to the establishment of the LNG Precinct at James Price Point.

The precinct will be capable of accommodating LNG processing and shipping facilities for at least two proponents currently exploring for and developing these resources.


The precinct will be located in the vicinity of James Price Point, about 60 kilometres north of Broome.

Learn more about the Bowen Basin mining location.

The Bowen Basin contains the largest coal reserves in Australia. This major coal producing region contains one of the world’s largest deposits of bituminous coal.

The Basin contains much of the known Permian coal resources in Queensland including virtually all of the known mineable prime coking coal. It was named for the Bowen River, itself named after Queensland’s first Governor, Sir George Bowen.

The Bowen Basin covers an area of over 60,000 square kilometres in Central Queensland running from Collinsville to Theodore and is dotted with many coal mines operated by multiple mining companies.
