Comment on Fracking probe head rejects suggestion advisors may be compromised by Braedon Earley.

In my opinion the NT Government’s Independent Enquiry into Hydraulic Fracturing has been compromised and is no longer independent.
It is also my opinion that the findings of the enquiry can no longer be relied upon by the community as and independent report without prejudice or biased.
The administrator will be informed of my opinion, I strongly advise others to write to the Administrator of the Northern Territory and express their concerns on the failure of this government to obtain independent advice in an independent enquiry which affects every Territorian.
This Government has failed to deliver on its election promise and is acting outside the interests of its constituents. It is not fit to govern.

Fracking forum with surprising rules
The panel is yet to declare any and all conflicts of interest it has and it should have also asked the same from those that submitted to them, including and not limited to consultants that they used.
Without said conflicts of interests declared, the final fracking inquiry submission cannot be considered a submission by the panel without compromise. Without prejudice.

Ailing economy needs on-shore gas, says Opposition
You can’t trust the CLP and you can’t trust NT Labor. Both want to frack.
The talk of an economic boom does not take into consideration the cost of remediating well failures now or into the future.
There is a world wide glut of gas. There are gas reserves being sat on by the same companies baying for the right to frack the NT, in other states in Australia and the Bass Strait.
There is no gas reservation policy in the NT. There is no downstreaming or proposed value adding to any gas produced in the NT.
None of the gas fracking models take into consideration the extraction, capturing, storing, transporting or remediating any oils extracted during the process.
Wet gas is common, condensates are valuable – but need a different management strategy to dry gas – not mentioned any where.
Higgins deserves to look like what he is: His party flounders with internal quarrelling, they can’t even organise a central council meeting. They haven’t had a president long enough in the seat to attend one, or general secretary for that matter.
They are as much an opposition as they are electable.
1 Territory will ban fracking when elected, make no mistake, the majority of Territorians don’t want fracking. They are just not being listened to.

Fracking failure: Now you see it, now you don’t
Sure, anything you say, Department of Primary Industry and Resources. That’s why it wasn’t in the final draft Report.
But of course, if you had mislead the inquiry or the panel and you could be found guilty of breaching Part 14 of the Inquiries Act NT.
Then who would spend the 12 months in jail? I am guessing if the NT Government was suing the NT Government, you guys might either settle out of court or release a statement saying: “The Department has fully cooperated with the Inquiry.” Just a guess.
