I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes the decision of Woodside Energy Ltd and its joint venture partners to process Browse gas offshore rather than at James Price Point, in the Kimberley; and

(b) calls on the Western Australian Government to end its efforts to compulsorily acquire the land at James Price Point from the Traditional Owners for the purpose of industrialising the Kimberley and to withdraw its application for a strategic assessment under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 of the James Price Point Browse gas processing site.

Question negatived.
