Environmental Defenders Office has made a submission on the Petroleum Legislation Miscellaneous Amendments Bill 2019.

EDO supports the passage of this Bill insofar as it implements important recommendations of the Fracking Inquiry. However, our support is subject to recommendations to amend various clauses. Our proposed amendments are intended to ensure the Fracking Inquiry’s recommendations are faithfully implemented, delivering a robust, transparent and accountable regulatory framework that responds appropriately to the environmental impacts and risks of petroleum and hydraulic fracturing activities in the Northern Territory.
