AlwaysFree: Woodside’s Pluto LNG Project Challenged by Environmental Group

Author: SSESSMENTS

On Tuesday, Woodside Petroleum announced that its Pluto LNG train expansion project’s approval in Australia is being challenged by an environmental group.

The Conservation Council of Western Australia (CCWA) will legally challenge the state's work approval for the project. CCWA opined that approval was unlawful as it did not properly consider the project's environmental harm.

Tim Macknay, a Managing Lawyer for the Environmental Defender's Office, which is representing CCWA, stated, "Any additional carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions take us further beyond what is considered acceptable for a safe climate.”

He elaborated that the project increases the risk of bushfires, droughts, heatwaves, and other climate-related phenomena which put communities at risk.

Woodside said it would defend its position in court.
