 Ichthys Project Draft Social Impact Management Plan (SIMP)

The Ichthys Project Draft Principal Social Impact Management Plan (SIMP) and associated fact sheets and overview describe potential social opportunities and impacts for Northern Territory communities that may result from Project activities, predominately during the construction phase. The SIMP is based on years of research, assessment, consultation, analysis and stakeholder engagement. Development of a SIMP was made a condition of Project approvals following the release and approval of the Ichthys Project Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The SIMP was open for comment from 18 November to 20 December 2013. Enquiries can be sent to simp@inpex.com.au

Construction Environmental Management Plan (NT Government)

To support the Environmental Protection Approval (EPA7 – as amended), Construction Environmental Management Plans have been developed by the onshore LNG facility contractor, which provide information regarding the onshore construction activities and the associated management measures for potential environmental impacts during these activities. The CEMP is regularly updated and approved to remain current. Revision 0 was developed for the initial construction activities. Revision 4 was updated to generally provide detail on wet season management measures. Revision 7 was updated to include new packages of work. Revision 9 was updated to reflect new approvals and to incorporate errata. Note that intermediate revisions (between Revision 0, Revision 4, Revision 7 and Revision 9) were for internal revision and approval procedures.
