Technical Reports


The following draft reports are being provided for community review and feedback as part of AGL’s broader community consultation program:

Online now:

Please note that these are working drafts, and may be subject to change prior to submission. They have been prepared on the basis of the design and engineering work as part of the feasibility studies, in advance of formal commercial arrangements being in place with FSRU operators or the final construction methodology being agreed.

These studies do not cover the pipeline between Crib Point and Pakenham, which is being developed separately by APA. We will keep the community updated on progress of the pipeline, including timing of applications to be lodged by APA for approvals under State and Commonwealth legislation.

What happens next?

Once all the reports are complete AGL plans to lodge a referral to the Minister for Planning mid year, who will make an assessment to determine whether an EES is required for the FSRU.

Prior to submitting the Referral, AGL  welcomes any comments or questions on the draft FSRU studies. Please email any comments to the project Community Relations Manager, Jay Gleeson by 15 June 2018

What other key approvals are required for the FSRU?

Information from the independent specialist studies provided above will also be used to support the following applications for the FSRU:

  • Referral to the Commonwealth Department of Environment and Energy under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act)
  • Application for a Works Approval to the Victorian EPA under the Environment Protection Act 1970

These applications are currently being prepared, and we will keep you updated as to when you will have an opportunity to review and provide any feedback.

In addition, there are a number of other Acts which are relevant to the design, construction and operation of the FSRU, including:

  • Coastal Management Act 1995
  • Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006
  • Port Management Act 1995
  • Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act 2004 and Regulations 2017.

The requirements of relevant legislation will be addressed throughout the FSRU
