Govt. gas mining “Community Information Open Day” Thurs 19 June 2014
This event is part of the State Govenrment’s push for acceptance of “onshore natural gas” (i.e.. conventional and unconventional gas).
Date: Thursday 19 June 2014
Venue: Torquay Bowls Club, The Esplanade, Torquay
This event seems to have been very poorly promoted by the govenrment, but it is critical that there is strong community participation.
It looks like this is the only event for this region.
Remember that the PEP163 exploration area also covers part of Grovedale and Waurn Ponds and that the permit owners “Lakes Oil” directors include Ian Plimer – an active climate change denialist and partly onwed by Gina Reinhart. Their website states “Lakes Oil is not involved in Coal Seam Gas. We do not intend to be involved in Coal Seam Gas.” – They are targetting ways to get around the State ban on tracking as this pro-gas article shows.
If you don’t know what this might mean for our region then this simple Google image search will give you an idea.
Community opposition has already slowed and stopped a number of these projects. Now it’s our time to act. Get informed, turn up and ask the hard questions.. does it mean drilling through water aquifers… can you gain access to my property without my permission … has there been contamination to rivers in other States … etc.
I hope you can make it …
