Natta 3D Seismic Survey

Closed 9 Sep 2021

Opened 3 Sep 2021


Strike West Pty Ltd propose to undertake a three-dimensional (3D) seismic acquisition survey within permits EP368, EP426, EP469, EP320 and L22; and acquisition of 2D seismic data along a single east-west seismic line within EP320 to tie into the existing Munganooka well. The proposal is located within the Shires of Three Springs, Irwin and Mingenew in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia. 

The proposal comprises a disturbance footprint of 919.11 linear kilometres within a development envelope of 15,854 hectares (ha). A total of 67.98 ha of native vegetation would require clearing within the disturbance footprint. Following completion of proposed activities, seismic access tracks would be rehabilitated. 

The seismic survey is proposed to be undertaken over a total activity period of 13 weeks, including mobilisation and demobilisation.

Why your views matter

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.
