The maximum calculated EPZ for the project is 0.7 kilometres.

The AER granted the request for the regulatory appeal on January 19, 2022.

The purpose of the hearing is to determine whether the AER should confirm, vary, suspend, or revoke its decision to approve Application No. 31097955 and issue Pipeline Licence No 62559.
