Comment on Cart before the horse on gas pipeline? by Naomi.
It would be interesting to know what Jemena means when they say, they will “bear any risk” with the project being pushed along.
What happens if they lay hundreds of kilometres of pipe and then realise they can’t proceed without impacting the rivers?
Will they call it off? Will they hope no one realises?
Will they do as other companies have done, and realise it’s cheaper to pay a fine for environmental damage then it is to have the project stalled or cancelled?
Surely the Minister could request that a clear plan and more information is provided BEFORE approval is considered. Surely our incredible NT rivers are worth it?
