This interim report outlines the current findings from the Senate inquiry into oil and gas exploration and production in the Beetaloo Basin, with particular reference to the Industry Research and Development (Beetaloo Cooperative Drilling Program) Instrument 2021, which provides public money for oil and gas...
Submission to the Senate Environment and Communications References Committee to oppose the Federal Register of Legislation on Industry Research and Development (Beetaloo Cooperative Drilling Program) Instrument 2021
This submission reviews some of the many new seminal studies on health impacts linked to with gas developments.
This paper argues that evidence-based planning for state-significant developments, such as gas mines, should balance the trade-offs between short-term economic gains and the long-term solutions for food security and ecosystem services that agriculture provides.
A study, purported to be from the CSIRO, that showed that fracking was “safe for the environment” was actually overseen by the gas industry, and was based on just six of Queensland’s 19,000 coal seam gas wells, according to this analysis by The Australia Institute.
This paper highlights that employment in gas-related manufacturing declined while gas in the Northern Territory was very cheap. Fracked gas will be far more expensive, making petrochemical manufacturing in the Territory unviable without massive taxpayer subsidy.
This document describes damning situations where state and federal governments have overlooked or ignored dangerous practices. It highlights the deficiencies of large-scale mining and resource development with emphasis on activities of most concern to communities; coal and unconventional gas.
This analysis shows Northen Territory (NT) fracking emissions under the NT Government’s own fracking inquiry’s high production scenario would be worse than the emissions of Australia’s coal fleet across the National Energy Market (NEM) in 2030, and require more offsets each year than have ever...

Implementation of the Government’s response to the Independent Scientific Panel Inquiry into Hydraulic Fracture Stimulation in Western Australia
This Implementation Plan responds to the final report of the Independent Scientific Panel Inquiry into Hydraulic Fracture Stimulation in Western Australia. The McGowan Government will support a safe, responsible and compliant approach to petroleum development, both onshore and offshore in Western Australia.
