We've pre-written a letter for you asking our Environment Minister to reject Woodside's WA gas expansion plans. Just add your details and a subject then hit send!

Woodside's Browse gas and North West Shelf extension proposals currently hinge on our Environment Minister’s approval.

Both proposals are climate and nature disasters, they threaten First Nations cultural heritage and are major components of Woodside's massive Burrup Hub gas expansion plans for WA – but we can stop them!

Together, our voices can push our Environment Minister into action.

Here's why we must urge Tanya Plibersek to reject Woodside's gas proposals: 

  1. Browse gas : Woodside proposes drilling 54 gas wells in and around the biodiverse Scott Reef in waters that whales, turtles and dolphins call home, and building a 900-km-long underwater pipeline to send the extracted gas onshore to its North West Shelf gas plant. Woodside’s environmental assessment warns that any gas and condensate spill would directly risk 39 threatened animals including Pygmy blue whales and Humpback whales.
  2. North West Shelf gas extension: Woodside proposes extending the life of its gas plant to 2070 to process gas from Browse as well as yet-to-be-identified gas fields. This could open the door to fracking the Kimberley and lock Australia into climate-wrecking gas for decades. Traditional Owners are concerned that the plant's emissions are risking the survival of ancient Murujuga rock art.

Both proposals are major components of Woodside's massive Burrup Hub gas expansion plans for WA. The Burrup Hub is the most polluting new coal, gas or oil proposal in the Southern Hemisphere, it has an expected lifetime emissions of more than 13 times Australia’s annual emissions.

Burrup would create climate destruction that threatens nature in WA and beyond: Scott Reef and marine life in WA, Ningaloo Reef, the Great Barrier Reef and the old-growth forests that support threatened species like Greater gliders, Swift parrots and Quolls.

There is also a strong Traditional Owner opposition to Woodside's Burrup Hub, as its many gas wells, plants and pipelines would tread over songlines and risk destroying ancient rock art on land and underwater.

If we can secure a rejection for the Browse and North West Shelf extension proposals from our Environment Minister now – it’ll go a long way to sinking Woodside's monstrous Burrup Hub gas expansion.

Together, let's urge our Environment Minister to reject Woodside's Browse gas and North West Shelf gas extension proposals!
