BHP Billiton will prepare an environmental impact report according to this assessment guide (EIS), if the environmental impact report is to pass the assessment, BHP Billiton's environmental impact report must indicate that the project can meet the highest environmental safety standards.

It is reported that after completing the environmental impact report, BHP will release it to the public and solicit opinions from local governments and the public.

BHP's expansion project is complex and will need to be fully investigated by a number of Australian government agencies, such as the Department of Energy and Mines, the Planning and Transport Infrastructure Agency, the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources, etc., to ensure that the environmental impact of the project is fully assessed.

In addition, the impact of the project on the surrounding communities and indigenous residents is also the focus of the assessment.
