  • Be polite and friendly.

Talking points

  • I’m calling you to make sure you understand the dangers of Woodside's Burrup Hub project.

  • The Burrup Hub project is a mega fossil fuel project proposed by Woodside Energy involving the development of two giant new gas fields (Browse and Scarborough) and other oil and gas resources off the Northwest of WA, to be processed for export as Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) on the Burrup Peninsula.

  • If it proceeds, Woodside's Burrup Hub will be the most polluting project ever developed in Australia, offering little benefit to Western Australians and putting our climate and communities directly at risk.

  • Over its 50-year lifetime, Woodside's Burrup Hub will generate over 6 billion tonnes of carbon pollution from gas production, export, and combustion overseas. That is equal to 11x the total annual emissions for the entire of Australia.

  • Every year Woodside’s Burrup Hub will produce 139 million tonnes of carbon pollution – over 4 times more than the proposed Adani coal mine, and the equivalent of 35 new coal-fired power stations.

  • The ‘carbon intensity’ of gas extracted from the Browse Basin will be nearly double the Australian average and Woodside’s Burrup Hub will produce some of the dirtiest, most carbon-intensive LNG anywhere in the world.

  • The project includes plans to drill over 50 wells to extract oil and gas from beneath the pristine Scott Reef off the Kimberley coast, impacting endangered marine life in a globally significant biodiversity hotspot home to pygmy whales and giant Green turtles.

  • Acid gas emissions will cause permanent damage to the world’s most extensive collection of Murujuga Aboriginal rock art, nominated for World Heritage listing on the Burrup Peninsula.

  • I am calling on you to do whatever you can to reject the development of Woodside's Burrup Hub and raise my concerns in Parliament.

Remember to thank them for their time!
