EPA referral launched for Yogi project (January 2018)

FIJV has launched its EPA and EPBC referrals on accredited assessment basis. A preliminary study has been completed on the Yogi tenement and pipeline route envelopes by an environmental consultant. This work included gathering and reviewing background information, pre-referral meetings with EPA officials, and conducting the EBPC Protected Matters search and the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation, and Attractions (DBCA) Threatened and Priority Fauna Database search. FIJV has now contracted GHD as its environmental consultant and seeks to continue the EPA and EPBC approval procedures until obtaining all necessary environmental approvals and permits for project operations to start.
