FACTSHEET - WHAT IS BEING PLANNED FOR MIDDLE ARM?

23.09.2022

The Northern Territory Government are proposing a 'Middle Arm
Sustainable Development Precinct' (MASDP) in the centre of
Darwin Harbour. But far from being sustainable, this precinct is
planned to be a gas-fed petrochemical hub that poses serious
human health and environmental risks. The industries the
Government has slated for development at the MASDP include
petrochemicals, gas processing, critical minerals processing, and
carbon capture and storage (CCS). The MASDP proposal is
currently being assessed by the NT Environment Protection
Authority, with a full Environmental Impact Statement expected
in 2023.
