Key Findings

The approval process for the Barossa project is not being assessed by one body. Rather, the offshore and onshore LNG processing parts of the project are being assessed separately by different Federal and Territory authorities. This gives approving bodies an incomplete picture as to the true emissions intensity of the project.

Adding CCS to the Barossa development, in the way Santos apparently favours, would bring little or no reduction in emissions while adding substantial cost, delays and risk.
