WOODSIDE'S LICENCE TO OCCUPY CROWN LAND IS ILLEGAL.
The Licence to Occupy Crown Land (licence number 1606-2008-01) was granted on the 24th October 2009 in so called accordance with section 91 of the Land Administration Act 1997 for the purpose of site investigation activities associated with the establishment of the proposed Kimberly LNG gas precinct and associated facilities.
Apparently, this 91 Licence is currently the only document with any legislated base in which Woodside is allowed, at all on Lot 259, Wattle Drive. However the following extracts from Freedom of Information (FOI) documents clearly outline how this Licence was granted.

Departments associated with this proposal: the Department of Water, the Department of Lands Administration, the Department of Indigenous Affairs, the Register for Indigenous Affairs, the State Police Force, the local Shire Council, Department of Environment and Conservation have over the past year failed in their statuary obligations to; enforcement, compliance, investigation, inspection, monitor, reporting findings, follow up investigations or complaints, understand the illegalities and implement penalties that should have be imposed. There is substantial evidence that Woodside had also seriously contravened this Licence and have breached several of the clauses within:
