Apache Energy has failed in its bid to secure an injunction from the Supreme Court preventing Mines and Petroleum Minister Norman Moore from viewing a report into last year's Varanus Island gas explosion.

However, the court ruled that Mr Moore would not be able to publish the report without Apache first reviewing and responding to it.

At a hearing in June in the Supreme Court, Apache had claimed that in compiling the investigation report, Kym Bills and David Agostini and the WA government had "breached a duty to afford procedural fairness" to the company.
