If the facility is 200 miles off the coast is WA and/or the federal government entitled to royalties? Does the facility fall under Australian jurisdiction for HSE compliance and Engineering design standards? Did the Minister know that this type of facility had not been approved in other gas producing regions because of not only these uncertainties but also the opportunity it gives Shell to prove this new technology ,so that in the future it can float these facilities out into the open ocean and not be accountable. Shell see Australia as an easy target.
