Marine Protected Areas and Offshore Natural Gas Basins
Tomas DiFiore
Australia, with the world's largest network of Marine Protected Areas plans to be the world's largest exporter of LNG, and ocean fracked natural gas. Every Australian MPA shown, is also mapped by basin for drilling and corresponding development (FLNG) or pipeline to shore facility, except the Coral Reef MPA. If California is to follow Australia's lead in Marine Protected Areas, Floating LNG processing facilities (FLNG) will be moored offshore. We may even see warmer oceans caused by Cyclic Steam Injection and fracking of conventional oil and gas wells on the seafloor just beyond California State waters and nearshore ecosystems.
