      SBS Living Black: "Just One More Step" - James Price Point
      By Michelle Lovegrove
      http://www.sbs.com.au/yourlanguage/aboriginal/highlight/page/id/263196/t/Just-One-More-Step----James-Price-Point/in/english
      18 Apr 13: "Woodside's decision to shelve gas hub plans is
      only a temporary reprieve, says an elder. Woodside's
      abandoned plans at James Price Point have been welcomed by
      traditional owners but the issue is by far from resolved.
      ... Goolarabooloo Elder Phillip Roe, together with the
      Broome community and environmental groups nationwide, have
      been working to stop the industrialisation of the
      Kimberley. He tells Marc Tong, even though it's a win for
      the community with Woodside's decision, there's a longer
      road to walk yet."

      JAMES PRICE GAS PLAN NOT OVER: MILNE

      SMH: James Price gas plan fight not over: Milne
      http://news.smh.com.au/breaking-news-national/james-price-gas-plan-fight-not-over-milne-20130412-2hpoy.html
      12 Apr 13: "Greens leader Christine Milne says the battle
      against Woodside Petroleum's Browse LNG plant won't be over
      until the company rules out any development of Western
      Australia's James Price Point. Senator Milne has welcomed
      the decision to reconsider the $45 billion liquefied
      natural gas processing plant in the Kimberley but says
      suggestions of smaller projects in the area are still
      cause for concern. "The battle is not won until they leave
      James Price Point and the West Australian government
      repeals the legislation that enabled the development of
      James Price Point," Senator Milne told reporters in
      Hobart." David Beniuk

      http://www.care2.com/causes/success-humpback-whale-nursery-and-the-kimberley-saved.html
      16 Apr 13: "Why would anyone want to build a liquid natural
      gas processing plant in a region that houses the world’s
      largest humpback whale nursery? ... Sea Shepherd Australia
      Director Jeff Hansen underscored the importance of winning
      such a "David and Goliath struggle": "This victory shows
      that no matter what the odds, no matter what the risks, no
      matter how well equipped, funded and government backed
      your opponents are, you must never give in, must never
      surrender, you must fight for what is right, because the
      one thing that is worth fighting for on our beautiful
      planet, is life."" Kristina Chew

      ABC: Browse decision shelves Broome airport expansion
      http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-04-20/broome-airport-expansion-shelved/4641208?section=wa
      20 Apr 13: "A spokesman for the Broome Airport says
      shelving plans to build an international terminal is a set
      back for the community. The proposed expansion was
      contingent on Woodside choosing James Price Point for the
      Browse LNG project. Woodside shelved the development
      earlier this month. The airport's Nick Belyea says the
      expansion is no longer viable without the Browse project.
      "It would have seen increased domestic services into the
      airport, primarily from Perth, those would have been
      additional jet services," he said."

      20 Apr 13: "Plans for a new $10-$20 million international
      airport terminal in Broome have been shelved in the wake of
      Woodside's shock decision to abandon the Kimberley gas hub.
      The facility, which was just months away from being built,
      would have seen a significant increase in commercial
      flights servicing the Kimberley and was designed to open
      up the region to the international market. Airport chief
      executive Nick Belyea said yesterday that the project was
      no longer viable." Steve Pennells, The West Australian

      12 Apr 13: "WOODSIDE warned that it could take up to five
      years to investigate the new options for developing the $43
      billion Browse liquefied natural gas (LNG) project, after
      scrapping plans for a massive onshore facility. ...
      Woodside said a smaller plant at James Price Point may be
      explored, along with the option of processing the offshore
      gas through a floating LNG plant, which most pundits see as
      the most likely option, and saving the gas to process at a
      later date through the North West Shelf plant at Karratha."

      15 Apr 13: "With all attention on its confirmation on
      Friday that the Browse project would not be developed at
      James Price Point, Woodside Petrolem has quietly thrown its
      hat in the ring to build an LNG export terminal on Canada's
      west coast. Details of what Woodside is proposing near the
      port town of Lax Kw'alaams, north of the more established
      LNG locations of Prince Rupert and Kitimat on the British
      Columbia coast, remain unclear."

      13 Apr 13: "As the WA premier characteristically dug his
      heels in about keeping Woodside's Browse gas project
      onshore, the far left of politics vowed it wouldn't be
      happy until the James Price Point development was ruled
      out completely. ... But it would consider a smaller
      land-based plant - a comment some analysts have dismissed
      as being designed to appease those pushing the original
      plan, including the state's premier Colin Barnett."

      to embrace floating liquefied natural gas technology
      swiftly in a bid to head off State Government and union
      concerns about abandoning their James Price Point gas hub
      project. The Weekend West understands Woodside Petroleum,
      Royal Dutch Shell and the other three partners will meet
      within days to formalise a plan to develop the rich Browse
      resource." Andrew Probyn, Daniel Emerson and Peter Klinger,

      claim that stiff opposition from environmentalists,
      indigenous heritage defenders and paleontologists hadn't
      been off-putting. As green groups - dismissed by West
      Australian Premier Colin Barnett as "professional
      protesters" - celebrated outside Woodside's Broome office,
      others debated whether the company would eventually opt for
      a floating project or simply pipe the gas south to the
      existing Pilbara gas precinct."

      billion liquid natural gas processing plant at James Price
      Point. The site on Western Australia’s pristine Kimberley
