Learmonth Bundle Site – Environmental Scoping Document

Closed 28 Feb 2018

Opened 14 Feb 2018


Subsea 7 Australia Contracting Pty Ltd proposes to construct and operate an onshore pipeline bundle fabrication facility at Lots 233 and 1586 to the east of Minilya-Exmouth Road, Learmonth, approximately 35 km south of the Exmouth townsite. A pipeline bundle co-locates a number of services within a single pipeline for use in the development of offshore gas fields. The operation of the proposal includes the launch of constructed pipeline bundles from Heron Point in the Exmouth Gulf, which then are towed offshore along a pre-determined route, through the Ningaloo Marine Park to Commonwealth Waters. 

The draft Environmental Scoping Document has been prepared in accordance with the EPA’s Procedures Manual (Part IV Divisions 1 and 2). The draft Environmental Scoping Document outlines the work required and key areas of focus for the environmental review.  The proponent will undertake this work and the information will be used to prepare an Environmental Review Document.
