|Summary Information: |
|The Enertrade - PCCC GQGP Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) was agreed between Queensland Power Trading Corporation trading as Enertrade (APPLICANT); and Colin Johnson, Lois Blackman, Kerry Blackman, Michelle Smith, Maureen Eggmolesse, Thelma Lingwoodock, Violet Smith and Charlie Broome on their own behalf and on behalf of the Port Curtis Coral Coast on 24 May 2007. The purpose of the ILUA is to allow for the construction, operation and maintenance of the Central Queensland Gas Pipeline (CQGP). The ILUA states that it will operate for the duration of the pipeline project. |
|Detailed Information: |
|The parties to the ILUA consent to the granting of a pipeline licence and associated easement for the construction, operation and maintenance of the CQGP, which will be an underground pipeline running from Moranbah to Gladstone, a distance of approximately 440km (Enertrade). The parties also agree to any other acts or works necessary for the upkeep and development of the pipeline. |
This ILUA includes agreement that 'future acts' may be done. The parties also agree that the right to negotiate provisions of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) do not apply to future acts, as the alternative consultation provisions are to be followed instead. 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.
The ILUA also states that the native title party will receive a specified amount of compensation.
