Australian officials support James Price Point LNG

MELBOURNE, Dec. 27 -- The Western Australian Department of State Development submitted a draft report recommending approval of the planned LNG-natural gas hub at James Price Point 60 km north of Broome on the Kimberley coast.

The draft report covers 3 years of scientific investigations, studies, and consultations into developing a multiuser LNG hub on the site.

The document points out that a single LNG hub would minimize the environmental footprint of LNG gas processing in the Kimberley with a single shipping channel and port.

A supplementary document addressing marine waste discharge, oil spill modeling, marine benthic primary producer habitat and coastal processes is to be released early in 2011 when the studies into these issues are complete.
