Re: proposed pipeline Westernport Bay
Yes. You’re right.
Our comment was in response to the consideration of other sites. Unlike other sites, Crib Point has an existing jetty already in commercial use. Our alternative, building a new jetty from scratch, was likely to cause even greater environmental impact. This was one of the reasons we were attracted to this location.
The jetty was built in the 1960s by the petroleum industry to help fulfil Victoria’s needs and is still used to bring petroleum into Victoria.
However, we will still need to do upgrade works on the jetty, including some of those you have mentioned. We are collating a complete list of the upgrades and will post it on the forum when we have received it.
But we certainly will take your comments on board and incorporate the refurbishment into our response on site selection so thank you for pointing that out to us.
