HOPES that Woodside Petroleum will abandon plans to build a massive gas plant near Broome have been boosted by news that a final investment decision on the controversial $30 billion Browse LNG project will be delayed until 2013.
West Australian Premier Colin Barnett last night indicated his government was likely to accommodate Woodside’s request for the decision deadline to be relaxed from its present date of mid-2012 until some time in 2013.
