CALL TO BAYSIDE COUNCIL
Friends of Earth Otway Forest Onshore Gas Petition
Last year the Andrews Government released five new oil and gas exploration blocks in the offshore Otway Basin in state waters, from Port Campbell to the South Australian border. They are part of the national 2018 Petroleum Exploration Acreage Release. Tenders for companies to apply closed on February 15, 2019. The department has said they had ‘good’ interest in the blocks, and will make a decision on successful bidders later in the year.
Obviously the time for new fossil fuels is long over.
We are calling on the government to cancel the tender process.
There are some things you can do to help the campaign:
