|The Hutton Creek Crossing - Comet Ridge Project Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) was agreed between Tipperary Oil and Gas (Australia) Pty Ltd and the Bijdjara People. The purpose of the ILUA is to provide consent for the extension and operation of a licensed gas pipeline.
|Under the ILUA, the parties agree that the 'right to negotiate' provisions of Subdivision P of Division 3 of Part 2 of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) do not apply to the future act described in the ILUA. Without this agreement, the project rights 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.
The parties further agree to:
(a) the grant or issue of the Pipeline License(s) and Easement(s); and
(b) the construction and operation of the Pipeline(s).
