Downstream Processing Chemical Production Facility

Closed 20 Nov 2018

Opened 14 Nov 2018

Overview

Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy & Fertilisers Limited proposes to construct and operate a methanol plant with a production capacity of approximately 5,000 tonnes per day (tpd) on Site E within the Burrup Strategic Industrial Area (SIA) on the Burrup Peninsula.   

The proposal is adjacent to the Murujuga National Park.   

The proposal would result in the disturbance of approximately 75 hectares within Site E.

Why We Are Consulting

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

What Happens Next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The EPA's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
