The Natural Gas Agreement Bill formalises an agreement between the Barnett Government and Buru Energy to build a pipeline from the Canning Basin to the Pilbara. Here it can tie into the Dampier to Bunbury pipeline bringing Canning Basin gas to both the domestic market in the South West and export facilities in the North West.
The Bill also requires Buru to continue to investigate gas reserves in time for a 2016 final investment decision on the construction of the pipeline and associated infrastructure.
Acquisition of land at James Price point would allow processing of shale gas as well as offshore gas.
