Linc Energy, a gas company operating out of Queensland’s Darling Downs, has been found guilty of causing serious environmental harm through the operation of its underground coal gasification (UCG) plant.
The case is a significant one, and the EESI Group’s Founder and Executive Chair, Phil Mulvey, was instrumental in the outcome. He provided expert witness technical advice on the environmental impacts of the UCG plant. Mulvey’s expertise was critical as the case involved mining, emissions from retorts, agriculture, and environmental auditing, and he was able to navigate these complex issues effectively.
The case is just one of the many expert witness roles that the EESI Group is currently undertaking as part of its growing legal support, M&A, and due diligence services. Recently, the group acquired the Arrium Onesteel group, which includes Liberty House (see separate article). The acquisition has bolstered the company’s extensive network and breadth of knowledge, making it an ideal partner for technical and tactical work needed for M&A and legal support.
Phil Mulvey, the Founder of EESI Group, said, “Our senior people have been operating in Australia for over 35 years in a diverse range of industries, which has resulted in them having a breadth of knowledge and an extensive network that is ideal for the technical and tactical work needed for M&A and legal support.”
