A Western Australian Indigenous group is in talks with Woodside Petroleum over obtaining a stake in its $12 billion Scarborough and Pluto LNG expansion to help secure the future of the local traditional owners, a senior Indigenous official told Reuters. Woodside gave the final go-ahead on Monday for the biggest new gas project in Australia in a decade, alarming conservationists worried about the impact the project might have on one of the world's largest collections of ancient rock art on adjacent Indigenous land. The Murujuga Aboriginal Corp (MAC) and its traditional owners have long worked with Woodside, as its Pluto LNG plant is on Murujuga country on the Burrup Peninsula.

LAUNCESTON, Australia (Reuters) -For the first time in a decade a massive new liquefied natural gas (LNG) project has been approved for construction in Australia, but the Scarborough venture's structure and market realities indicate it may well be the last of its kind. Woodside Petroleum and BHP Group gave final backing on Monday to the $12 billion plan to develop the Scarborough natural gas field off Western Australia and expand the onshore Pluto LNG plant to process the fuel. The deal also sees Woodside merge with BHP's petroleum arm, with BHP shareholders to be issued new Woodside shares and ending up with about 48% of the expanded share capital.
