VIC | EES Case Study: Viva Energy Gas Terminal Project

This presentation will outline the EES Process, using the Viva Energy Gas Terminal Project as a case study.

Viva Energy is proposing to develop its Gas Terminal Project in Corio Bay, Geelong, comprising a Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) to store Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) received from visiting LNG carriers and regasify the LNG as required to meet south-eastern Australian gas market demand.

On 28 December 2020 the Minister for Planning required Viva Energy Gas Australia Pty Ltd to prepare an EES under the Environment Effects Act 1978 to assess the potential environmental effects of the project. Draft scoping requirements for this EES were on public exhibition from 26 April to 17 May 2021. A formal EES is currently being prepared.

Meet the speakers:

Jack Krohn of DELWP will provide an overview of the EES Process, and
Laura Bishop of Viva will provide details of the proposed development and the steps it will follow as part of the EES.

There will be ample opportunity for discussion, followed by networking over drinks and nibbles.

This event will be offered as a professional development and networking event in Melbourne and via livestream for attendees who cannot make it to Melbourne for the event.
