Traditional owners agree to Kimberley LNG gas hub at James Price Point

Traditional owners in the Kimberley have reached agreement with Woodside and the government to build a gas hub at James Price Point, 60 kilometres north of Broome.

Native title claimants have voted in favour of a deal to build a contentious gas hub at James Price Point, 60 km north of the Kimberley town of Broome.

At a meeting in Broome, the Jabirr-Jabirr Goolarabooloo people agreed to the deal which will see them receive over $1 billion worth of benefits during the life of the project.

The gas plant will be used to process the massive gas reserves off the Browse Basin.

$1.5 billion benefits package trade off

The community has spent the last four days in lockdown in Broome, being briefed on the details of the multi-billion dollar benefits package they are being offered.

The traditional owners will relinquish their native title interests in the 3,500 ha of land and water required for the precinct, in return for a benefits package.

The State Government says the more than $1.5 billion in benefits will include funds for building homes, establishing businesses and education initiatives as well as land for housing.

The land will be under government control with sites leased to Woodside Energy and any future partners.

The government says when the land is no longer required it will return it to the traditional owners as freehold.
