In 2011, Eneabba Gas Ltd reported they had all the approvals needed, but were in need of a transmission line to proceed.[2] Eneabba Gas Ltd say on their website: "The Company is considering development options including searching for a funding partner," but haven't posted an annual report since 2016.[3][4]

In late 2019, the project received an extension of its Work Approval.[5] As of November 2019, no further news on the project has been reported. Therefore the project appears to be cancelled.
