BAROSSA AREA DEVELOPMENT OFFSHORE PROJECT PROPOSAL SUBMISSION TO THE JAPAN BANK FOR INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION
Jubilee Australia, The Australia Institute and The Environment Centre NT welcome the opportunity to make a submission to the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (JBIC) regarding the Barossa Area Development Offshore Project Proposal. The Barossa offshore gas development proposal is a significant, controversial and high-risk project, and it is in this light that taxpayer-backed finance facilities to support its development should be rigorously assessed and reviewed. As research institutions with considerable experience working with economic, social and environmental issues, in particular in the extractive sectors, we have significant concerns regarding the risks and impacts of this project.
