A powerful media artifact expressing the position of the defenders of Lelu island. In combination with the legal applications in the Federal Court, this determined occupation of Lelu island may be having consequences for the progress of the proposed LNG project. There is now speculation that Petronas owned Pacific NorthWest LNG is seriously considering Ridley Island as an alternative site for its export terminal. The original proposal meant that liquefied natural gas from the plant on the island would be piped to marine docking berths near the ecologically and culturally sensitive Flora Bank, via a suspension bridge. Now, while it appears that the plant will remain on Lelu, it seems the births of the export terminal may be moved to nearby to the newly available Ridley Island.
