future act provisions

The extract notes that there are statements within the ILUA of the kind mentioned in ss 24EB(1) or 24EBA(1) or (4) of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth), and so the consequences set out under these sections are triggered.

  • the grant of the Pipeline Licence;
  • the grant of any right, title or interest in relation to the Pipeline or the Project;
  • the grant of any tenure; and
  • any and all acts necessary or incidental to the above acts or to the implementation of the Project, provided these acts have no greater effect on native title than any of the above acts.

The ILUA is within the area of native title recognised by consent of the parties in the Federal Court of Australia ('FCA') proceeding Katakarinja on behalf of Imperlknge, Urlatherrke, Parerrule, Yaperlpe, Urlampe, Lwekerreye and Ilewerr landholding groups and those persons with rights and interests in the area of land and waters known as Kwerlerrethe v Northern Territory of Australia [2016] FCA 685 (FCA File No.: NTD6/2013; NNTT File No.: DCD2016/002).
