The Western Australian Environmental Protection Authority’s new guidelines on the carbon neutrality of resources projects continue to attract scrutiny. Macquarie Group has warned that the guidelines are likely to result in Woodside Petroleum’s Browse LNG project being delayed, and its modelling suggests that the cost of Browse could blow out by more than $US5bn. Woodside COO Meg O’Neill has told a conference in Perth that the EPA guidelines could jeopardise both the Browse and Scarborough projects, as well as the long-term future of the North West Shelf venture.
