APPEA urges WA to follow NT

The Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association (APPEA) has urged Western Australia to lift its ban on hydraulic fracturing following the Northern Territory’s decision this week.

Following yesterday’s decision to lift the moratorium on fracking in the Northern Territory, Jemena has signalled its intention to extend and expand the Northern Gas Pipeline (NGP).

Northern Territory Chief Minister Michael Gunner today announced the NT Government had accepted all 135 recommendations of the independent fracking inquiry.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has announced no new offshore oil and gas exploration permits will be granted in order to address climate change.

In some good news for the SA gas industry, the Hon Dan van Holst Pellekaan was appointed as the state’s Minister for Energy and Mining on 22 March 2018.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern may halt new oil and gas exploration in favour of backing alternative industries, reports The Australian.
