Australia to Review Santos, Glencore Projects for Water Impacts

Oct. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Coal and coal-seam gas projects in Australia planned by Santos Ltd., Arrow Energy Ltd., Hancock Prospecting Pty Ltd. and Glencore Xstrata Plc must face a federal environmental review of their impact on water, filings with the Australian government show.

Environment Minister Greg Hunt’s decisions on the projects were dated Oct. 17 and lodged on the department’s website. Hunt said Sept. 26 that 47 projects will be assessed for their impact on water before they can gain government approval.

Arrow Energy, based in Brisbane, is owned by Royal Dutch Shell Plc and PetroChina Co.
