No NT Fracking Pipeline - Melbourne Solidarity Action #NoNTPL

  • 567 Collins St Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia (map)

Jemena are criminals for the climate - they intend to build a 622kmn Northern Gas Pipeline that will open up the NT to fracking - something the land, water and climate can't afford.

The Northern Gas Pipeline is a dangerous investment in fossil fuels and the fracking industry at a time when the Australian people are calling for investment in renewable energy.  

To approve a gas pipeline designed to prop up the fracking industry in the Territory is a betrayal of trust in the current NT Fracking Inquiry process and the current fracking moratorium. 

Pipeline company Jemena has been very clear that the pipeline is designed to open up new onshore gasfields across the Territory. 

The pipeline will drive a new transport route for future fracking gasfields across the NT. It will become key infrastructure for a high risk onshore fracking industry. 

The only way to provide certainty that this pipeline won’t lead to fracking gasfields across the Northern Territory is to ban shale gas fracking. 

The majority of pastoralists and Traditional Owners across the NT do not want their lands and waterways transformed into industrial fracking gasfields. They want a ban on fracking like we hav here in Victoria.

THIS PROJECT MUST NOT BE APPROVED BY THE NT GOVERNMENT WHILST A MORATORIUM ON FRACKING EXISTS AND AN INQUIRY IS UNDERWAY.

Warumungu traditional owner Diane Stokes said about the Northern Gas Pipeline, “The main concern that we have is about fracking.” 

“We don’t want any fracking anywhere to get gas to go through that pipeline that’s going through our country.”

Warumungu traditional owner, Ross Williams, said he said he did not want the project to encourage fracking anywhere.

“It’s not about the employment or the money, it’s about the environment, and to make sure that the water systems are kept fully clean for the next generation and the generation after that,” he said.
