Australian Government Discusses Kimberley LNG Project

Wednesday, April 04, 2007
The Western Australian Government has clarified its stance on liquefied natural gas (LNG) developments in the Kimberley, saying they would be beneficial to the region, ABC reported. State Resources Minister Eric Ripper was commenting on a national media campaign challenging the developments by the Broome-based lobby group Cultural Heritage Environmental Advocacy for the Kimberley (CHEAK) this week.

The group believes the Kimberley should be preserved as one of the world's last wilderness regions, and is concerned about the impact on climate change from the carbon dioxide emitted from the facilities. But Ripper says LNG is environmentally-friendly. Source: ABC
