Question to the Environment Minister on the Sea Dumping Bill

My question is for the Minister for the Environment and Water. The carbon capture and storage project linked to Chevron's Gorgon gas mine is universally recognised as a monumental failure. The Government's Sea Dumping Bill would allow CCS project such as this to go ahead. Specifically, it will enable the colossal Barossa gas mine to proceed. This will be one of the most polluting gas fields in the world. Isn't enabling the Barossa gas mine to proceed through passing the Sea Dumping Bill incompatible with our Paris Agreement obligations?
