Browse Basin changes hit hurdle

WA premier says he will not allow Browse to pursue FLNG.

West Australian Premier Colin Barnett has said he will oppose efforts by the Browse Basin gas project partners, led by Woodside Petroleum Ltd, to change the conditions of their retention leases and process the gas offshore, according to The Australian Financial Review.

The partners, Woodside, Shell, BP, Mitsubishi/Mitsui and PetroChina, are hoping to use floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) technology for the massive project (see Woodside's yield-growth challenge by Tim Treadgold).
