Summary Information:
The Gurang Land Council and Central Queensland Pipeline Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA)was agreed between Central Queensland Pipeline Pty Ltd (APPLICANT)and the Gurang Land Council (Aborginal Corporation) and was registered on 22 December 2008 on the Register of Indigenous Land Use Agreements.

The purpose of the ILUA is to provide consent for the construction of a gas pipeline between Moranbah and Gladstone in Central Queensland and for other acts necessary to give effect to this Project.
Detailed Information:
The Parties consent to:

•the grant of Project rights, which are defined in the ILUA as 'all approvals, consents, licences, titles, renewals and other entitlements required in the ILUA area,' including but not limited to pipeline licences and associated easements, permits, and licences to occupy;
•any other act necessary or expedient to give effect to the Project;
•refraining from challenging the validity, at any time, of works comprising the Project as long as the Project proceeds in accordance with applicable laws and authorizations.

The parties agree that the right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) do not apply, as the alternative consultation provisions are to be followed instead.

Without this agreement, the grant would have been invalid and the right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) would apply. Under this Act any activity, such as a grant of land, that may affect native title rights is defined as a 'future act' and must comply with the future act provisions of the Act in order to be valid.
