The Environmental Defenders Office (EDO) is the largest environmental legal centre in the Australia Pacific, dedicated to protecting our climate, communities and shared environment by providing access to justice, running ground breaking litigation and leading law reform advocacy.

The EDO appreciates the opportunity to contribute to this review of the
Petroleum and Geothermal Energy Act 2000 ( the Act) and to comment on the Bill due for tabling in July.

However we understand the proposed amendments do not represent a
review of the entire regulatory system and therefore look forward to participating in a fuller review at a later stage.
