West Australian Premier Colin Barnett was recently quoted in local media as saying “I don’t think it is safe environmentally to have such a massive offshore production and storage facility for gas and oil [FLNG].”
“Hopefully, it never will but accidents do happen, like the Gulf of Mexico and also Montara,” he added.
But the head of Shell Australia, Ann Pickard, argues "It's designed around safety, safety is absolutely paramount, protecting the environment, protecting the people is absolutely paramount in the design, so obviously I disagree," she was quoted as saying by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC).
Shell is now building an FLNG facility at Samsung Heavy Industries in Korea for natural gas development at the Prelude field off Western Australia.
