Kimberley Gas Project
The 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.
