Halt Drilling at Scott Reef in Kimberly

  • by: Environmental Advocates
  • recipient: Woodside Petroleum,-and the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water and Population

The pristine marine region around Scott Reef is offshore the Kimberley coast in Western Australia.  Its waters are inhabited by an extraordinary profusion of marine life including the illusive whale shark, the pigmy blue whale and are the breeding grounds for green turtles.


Scott Reef provides nesting, feeding and migratory habitat for endangered green sea turtles as well as for loggerheads, hawksbills,  flatbacks and other sea turtles. The green turtles that inhabit the waters around Scott Reef are considered to be a genetically distinct population of the globally endangered species.


Woodside Petroleum plans to drill up to 90 wells in and around Scott Reef. After drilling its gas wells into Scott Reef, Woodside wants to pump the gas to its proposed gas hub at James Price Point - potentially dealing a double blow to the environment on both land and sea in this extraordinary part of the Kimberley.


Tell Woodside Petroleum no drilling in Kimberly's Scott Reef.
