Buru hon­oured for bilby pro­ject

The West Australian - - WEST BUSINESS -

A WA en­ergy ju­nior that is of­ten the tar­get of con­ser­va­tion­ists has been given an en­vi­ron­men­tal gong by the oil and gas in­dus­try.

The Aus­tralian Pe­tro­leum Pro­duc­tion & Ex­plo­ration As­so­ci­a­tion gave Buru En­ergy the award in Ade­laide last night for an ini­tia­tive to pro­tect bil­bies. Buru is fre­quently tar­geted by anti-frack­ing ac­tivists for its gas drilling plans in the Kim­ber­ley.

APPEA direc­tor Gra­ham Sal­mond said the judges found the bilby pro­ject was a no­table ex­am­ple of Buru’s cul­ture of en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion.

The or­gan­i­sa­tion also recog- nised Wood­side with its safety award.

Mr Sal­mond said Wood­side was con­tin­u­ing a strong fo­cus on process safety and as­set man­age­ment, and was in­creas­ing its use of data an­a­lyt­ics to min­imise risks.
