The Economics and Industry Standing Committee as part of the Western Australian Legislative Assembly have undertaken a safety inquiry into matters relating to FLNG projects in Australian waters off the Western Australian coast.
In particular the Committee has investigated:
- the measures taken by project proponents to ensure the safety of workers on FLNG facilities, particularly in relation to extreme weather events and emergency evacuation preparedness;
- the adequacy of Western Australia’s emergency capacity and preparedness to respond to a safety or environmental incident involving FLNG; and
- the role and responsibilities of the state and federal governments in relation to FLNG emergency situations.
