ASX-listed Provaris Energy on December 8 said the Tiwi Land Council (TLC) has reiterated the support for its Tiwi H2 hydrogen project in the Australian state of Northern Territory.
“Stakeholder meeting held 5 December 2022 reconfirms Munupi landowner support for Tiwi H2 to proceed with existing permissions granted for on-country geotechnical survey, solar monitoring, and commencement of Section 19 land agreement drafting,” the company said.
Provaris said that several meetings during 2021 and 2022 with the Munupi Clan group have resulted in specific permissions being granted for on-country activities to support the completion of the design concept study and NT EPA referral submission.
Further permissions have also been granted for future activities, including aerial drone surveys and geotechnical survey programme, to better define the solar precinct and transmission line down the Port Melville industrial zone.
“In parallel to the on-country permissions, the TLC and Provaris will commence Section 19 Lease drafting and negotiations, in parallel with drafting and negotiating the Relinquishment Agreement with TPC,” the company said. “The purpose of such negotiations are to clarify the value and definition of the annual multi-million community benefits package the Tiwi H2 project could bring to the Munupi Clan and Tiwi People.”
The Tiwi H2 project is designed to export 100,000 metric tons/year of green hydrogen from 2027 over a 30-year.
