Greens Leader Christine Milne congratulated campaigners around Australia who forced Woodside to reconsider its gas hub at James Price Point.

"I congratulate all the campaigners in the Kimberley and around the country, and especially Chris Maher, Greens candidate for the Kimberley, West Australian MLC Robin Chapple and our Federal Senators Rachel Siewert and Scott Ludlam on the outstanding leadership they've contributed to this campaign," Christine Milne said.

"Now that Woodside is reconsidering its project, it's important that everyone steps up their efforts to prevent them from carrying out any construction at James Price Point.

"Now they're on the run, it's time to make sure they are gone forever and James Price Point is safe from industrialisation.

"It's time for the West Australian Government to end the compulsory acquisition process for James Price Point, and Woodside should declare that if it does proceed with any offshore platform, the economic benefits should go to the communities in the region, especially the traditional custodians."
