Fracking Inquiry

Fracking Inquiry Survey

On 20 February 2017 the inquiry released a Background and Issues Paper to facilitate the first stage of consultation with Territorians.

The first half of the paper provides background information within the Northern Territory context, such as the locations of prospective shale gas reservoirs and an overview of the regulatory framework for hydraulic fracturing and the petroleum industry.

The second half of the paper outlines the potential risks of hydraulic fracturing and associated activities under the following nine themes:

  • Water
  • Land
  • Air
  • Public Health
  • Aboriginal people and their culture
  • Social
  • Economic
  • Land access
  • Regulatory Framework.

The panel would like to know if you think the risks and issues identified are appropriate for the panel to consider during the course of the inquiry, or if there are issues which should or should not be considered.
