Gasfield Free Byron Bay & Northern Rivers

Carrying on the activism from the huge community project of resisting the government backed mining insanity at Bentley NSW in 2015. This page includes posts from 2 FB pages: CSG Free Byron Bay & CSG Free Northern Rivers. – – – The aim of the Gasfield Free Northern Rivers movement is to protect the biodiversity, water resources, agricultural lands and sustainable industries of the Northern Rivers, and the livelihoods and wellbeing of the people who live here, from the impacts of coal seam gas (CSG) and other forms of unconventional gas mining. Our objective is to have the Northern Rivers region declared a CSG and unconventional gas free zone, and for all current licenses and leases that allow such activities to be revoked.

Gasfield Free Byron Shire


The Chair of the Regional Development Australia Kimberley wants to start discussions about a pipeline from the Valhalla 2 gas reserve in the Canning Basin to Broome.

Former Shire President Graeme Campbell says the real pipeline would replace the 'virtual pipeline' of gas trucked from Karratha.

The Conservation Council is concerned about the idea claiming fracking operations could harm the environmental ecosystem in the Kimberley.

Mr Campbell says there will be higher demand for power in the future, with Sheffield Resources and other operations needing certainty.

He says preliminary work will go on, despite the statewide moratorium on fracking.

"You've got to recognise the fact of course that the state government currently has an inquiry into fracking, that could be an inhibiting factor but with any big project it's going take a while."

take ya fracking n csg n stick where mum hasnt kissed ya water is life,leave the water table alone dickheads


it means we have a government payed and run bye the corporations , they should be removed from office and tried for treason to the people of Australia. the people are the power and the governments answer to the people not corporations, we have no government we have greedy tyrants , who will sell out our country because they do not come from this country, we need politicians that are born and bread here , not 1st generation immigrants who have no loyalty to Australia , but only answer to the the money pigs '.

Totally idiotic, an ideologically driven idea. We don't have a shortage of gas. We are world's biggest exporters of gas. We get minimal royalties compared with other countries and our overseas customers pay less than half the price that we do. Some companies are thinking of buying our gas in Japan and bringing it back here. Apparently it will still be cheaper than buying it here. The idea of fracking the whole country is total crap, a scam by Turnbull and his mates. What is needed is a bit of government intervention to reserve Australian gas for Australia and at the same cost customers are paying overseas. We are being screwed by energy companies aided and abetted by LNP Govt. Finally we need a revised royalty regime so Australians get something for the exploitation of our resources by non tax paying multi nationals

Stop payment if they don't preferably

I think that is a disgusting idea. Government should listen to what the people want, not pander to corporations. They're sitting there in Canberra, going to their priviliged homes during the weekend, getting a VERY good salary AND pension, and they want to force us, the people, to accept the fracking of our land? Disgusting!

it's a dishonest cloaked attempt by Turnbull, Frydenberg and Morrison to pit state against state, along with the issue of poker machine revenue.

Criminally wrong. It's incomprehensible that a country which produces such an enormous amount of gas for export, can't retain enough for their own needs. Insane!!!


No surprises here, with this government committing blackmail to get their way.

I've been buying Australian gas in Asia for half the price I pay for it here in Australia. We have been sold down the river and told to paddle

The federal governments lost the plot We have plenty off gas already tapped and because off contracts set up by our stupid state governments now we don't have enough needs a blockade at the gas export plant and stop the gas flowing give it back too those who own it is the taxpayers off this slowly but surely getting fucked up country

It is the sort of behaviour you would expect to find in a fascist country.


Better then fracking! But outrageous

That is blackmail!

Police state. This is a side effect of Malcolm allowing the industry to come up with a solution to the gas crisis. 'Sure we'll guarantee supply - if you let us frack the hell out of the country'.

I think that whoever thought up that idea should be shot and his clothes burnt !

Maybe we stop paying gst in nsw

They need to be cobcentrating on our water resources, plenty of areas have shortage of water. We have plenty of gas and Fraking destroys the land

Treason and blackmail.

The bit people miss is that we know renewables are the answer and cost-effective, but what are the grubs going to make money out of when our energy costs next to nothing, they are going to destroy prehistoric aquifer's and then sell us water.

That's what we want, we say no and they bugger off. Sounds good anyway.

Undemocratic. We, the people, had to work long and hard to get our state govts to listen to our insistence, with good reason and plenty of evidence of the damage it has caused elsewhere, that we wanted fracking eliminated, or at least curtailed. The federal govt is showing no respect for the democratic process or the very broad spectrum of the population which has expressed its views in no uncertain terms. Appalling and unconscionable.

Shouldn't it read states penalised for allowing fracking

How very warm and fuzzy of Mr Henderson. 

Pity the analogy doesn't hold up for the toxic water and gases that come out of a coal seam gas well!
