Narrabri Gas Project

Fossil Free SA and Extinction Rebellion SA have organised a week of climate action to draw attention to the disastrous impact of gas and call for the Tour Down Under to #BreakAwayFromGas, reports Kerry Smith.

Mat Ward was as pissed off as most people when Santos' coal seam gas project was approved in Narrabri, despite 98% of people opposing it. So he decided to spend a few days cycling the area and meeting the activists who are fighting back.

The Sydney Knitting Nannas and Friends once again protested outside state parliament against NSW planning’s decision to recommend Santos’ coal seam gas project in the Pilliga, reports Pip Hinman.

Farmers, businessmen and Traditional Owners from north-west NSW travelled to Adelaide on May 3 to tell Santos and its shareholders at the company AGM it will face a rural uprising if it proceeds with the Narrabri coal seam gasfield.

They were joined by South Australian locals who oppose Santos’s plans to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight, telling Santos it has “No Licence to Drill” because these projects do not have community support.

Santos has ignored the 23,000 mainly oppositional submissions on its Environmental Impact Statement in a 1000-page response released on April 23, which claims its Narrabri Gas Project can be developed "safely" and "sustainably".

When the Nationals visited Narrabri on May 12 for dinner and talks, many in the community lined the entrance to voice their opposition to coal seam gas (CSG). NSW Nationals leader John Barilaro did not receive the welcome he expected.

"Hopefully he takes the message into the event that the electorate does not want this industry to take hold," said Narrabri farmer Stuart Murray.
