The federal government will put pressure on Woodside Petroleum and its Browse LNG joint venture partners to commit to developing the gas project. The current retention lease expires in mid-2020, and Resources Minister Matt Canavan has warned that the Browse partners risk losing the licence if they cannot demonstrate that they are ready to make a final investment decision. Fortescue Metals Group is among the companies that could potentially take up the Browse lease if Woodside and its partners are forced to relinquish it.
