Abstract: Phillips Petroleum Company Australia Pty Ltd (now ConocoPhillips Australia Pty Ltd) were given approval by both the NT and Commonwealth environmental ministers in 1998 for the construction and operation of a proposed 3 Million Tonnes Per Annum (MTPA) LNG facility at Wickham Point, in Middle Arm of Darwin Harbour. This project was deferred, and in March 2002 Darwin LNG Pty Ltd (a subsidiary company of ConocoPhillips) submitted a Public Environmental Report for an expanded 10MTPA LNG plant. Post construction inspections were carried out by MEB in January and March 2006. Sites of particular interest were stormwater drains, stormwater drain end points, stormwater pits, sediment basins and discharge points, disturbed tidal areas and landscaped areas. As this report is based on the post construction inspection only, discussion on mosquito species is limited to the major potential pest and vector species. For further information on mosquito species mentioned in this report readers should refer to the Wickham Point Baseline Biting Insect Report (Warchot and Whelan 2004).
