Approvals Process and Timelines

In 2015, Tellus lodged a project referral to the Commonwealth Department of the Environment (DoE) now referred to as the Commonwealth Department of the Environment and Energy (DoEE) and to the Western Australia (WA) Environment Protection Authority (EPA). The EPA determined a Public Environmental Review (PER) would be required to address environmental and social aspects associated with construction and operation of the proposed Sandy Ridge Facility.

A PER has been prepared to address the requirements set out in the final Environmental Scoping Document (ESD). The ESD sets out the terms of reference for the PER. In order to construct and operate the proposed Sandy Ridge Facility, Tellus is seeking approval from:
  • The Commonwealth Department of the Environment and Energy (DoEE)
  • The WA Environment Protection Authority (EPA)
  • The WA Department of Mines and Petroleum (DMP)
  • The WA Department of Environment and Regulation
There are many pieces of environmental legislation that the PER must address. However, the key environmental legislation which the EIS addresses are:
  • Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999
  • Part IV of the Environmental Protection Act 1986
  • Mining Act 1978
Tellus has prepared a PER for the proposal. The draft PER has been reviewed for adequacy by the OEPA and other key decision making authorities in the WA Government and Commonwealth Government.

The PER is available for public review and comment between 12 December, 2016 and 7 March, 2017
