Santos submits Narrabri CSG plan amid sale speculation

Santos submits Narrabri CSG plan amid sale speculation

Mike Foley The Land 1 February, 2017

AFTER years of delays, gas developer Santos has finally submitted development plans for its Narrabri project in and around the Pilliga forest to NSW government.

The company says the project will deliver supply security and construction jobs to the State. But opponents claim the company is seeking approval to boost the prospects of the project, given Santos has written down the value of the project by $1 billion.

Santos’ major planning assessment document for the project, the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), was lodged with NSW Planning on Wednesday morning. The Department typically reviews EIS documents for several weeks before they are made public and submissions are opened.

 

Santos chief executive Kevin Gallagher was quoted in a statement on the Australian Securities Exchange which said had “spent time producing a comprehensive EIS so the local Narrabri community and stakeholders can be confident the environment and water will be protected as the project is developed”.

The statement said CSG be located on about 1000 hectares in and around the Pilliga forest near Narrabri. About 60 percent of the project area covers land set aside by State government for forestry, the rest on privately held farmland. Santos signed a statement to government and farm groups which committed not force entry on any privately-held land.

Santos lodges Narrabri Gas Project EIS to trigger NSW’s final CSG showdown

Santos today submitted the State Significant Development Application and associated Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for its Narrabri Gas Project to the NSW Department of Planning and Environment.

The proposed Narrabri Gas Project, located in North West NSW, could supply up to 50% of NSW gas needs and provide significant benefits to the region and the state more broadly.  Santos will make the gas available to NSW and the east coast domestic market via a pipeline linking into the existing Moomba to Sydney Pipeline. The pipeline will be constructed by APA Group and will be subject to a separate approval.

THE unconventional gas industry has labelled Senator Glenn Lazarus’s call for a committee to look into the impact of unconventional gas mining in Australia as “politically motivated”.

Coal seam gas exploration is the biggest unconventional mining issue in the North West, with Santos holding exploration licences over parts of the Pilliga Forest, Narrabri surrounds and other parts of the region.
