Forrest ramps up onshore oil and gas exposure
Nick Evans - The West Australian
Mining heavyweight Andrew Forrest has staked a claim in WA’s emerging onshore oil and gas industry, staking claims over more than 220,000 square kilometres of the Canning Basin in the Kimberley
While the applications are yet to be granted, Goshawk already controls a number of tenements in the Canning Basin, and was subject of criticism from environmental groups in 2013 when it won a licence allowing the company to explore a permit that included the Broome water supply reserve, and the site of bitter protests over the James Price Point development.
