James Price Point picked for LNG hub

The commercial viability of a liquefied natural gas hub in the Kimberley appears to rest on oil giants Woodside Petroleum and Inpex, as the state government selects James Price Point, 60 kilometres north of Broome, as its preferred site.

Though it is reasonable to expect continued economic advancement, the WA government would seem to be reacting in a knee jerk fashion just to satisfy the “big boys” of the world and of course it’s own “popularity” in much the say manner as the Rudd governments knee jerk decision to blow $10.3 Billion in economic security strategy payments as a “quick fix” means of stimulating the economy. Neither of these two actions seem to have or had any real long term research into their viability. I wonder if any real serious thought beyond the money grubbing has gone into this James Price Point decision. It seems to me that yet another unique and pristine environment in terms of the unique natural elements, local indigenous cultural considerations and lifestyle will be altered forever by the influx of thousands of construction workers who bring with them their typical behaviour issues involving alcohol, poor public behaviour, bad language, littering and zero consideration for others as they R&R using the pitiful excuse that they are “hard working” people who need to unwind. These blow-ins are generally in a particular environment for a short term, then blow out to chase the next major cash cow. Take a good look at Karratha.
