“With no commercially-proven shale gas reserves anywhere in the Territory, it
was simply madness for a major export pipeline project to be built on the basis of
a non-existent gas market,” she said.
“Plans to downsize its capacity and the reduction in gas exploration activity are a
direct response to the global oil and gas price crash.
“The Giles Government is trying to blame everyone but themselves for the fact
their pipeline idea is uneconomic.
“Whether or not the pipeline is built, fracked gas from the NT is expensive to
produce and is unlikely to have a customer base.”
Ms Mellor said the Chief Minister wasn’t upfront with the public about the pipe-
line’s reliance on fracked gasfields when announcing the project.
“Now he expects taxpayers to foot the bill for an industry which is increasingly
clear has no social licence to operate here,” she said.
“The Chief Minister promised no public money would be used to subsidise the
project but now he is attempting a backflip.
“The last thing we Territorians should be doing is throwing more good money after
bad on doomed fracking investments.”
Asian conglomerate Jemena was announced as the winning tenderer in November.
The $800-million, 623 kilometre pipeline, due for completion by 2018, was sup-
posed to fast-track the development of the Territory’s onshore shale gas industry.
The company touted that during the planning, construction and commissioning
phases, up to 600 local jobs and 100 contracts for local businesses worth around
$112 million would be created.
Additionally, operations and maintenance teams would be based at Tennant Creek
and Mt Isa.
Long-term prospects were said to include the potential for 4000 jobs and possible
billions of dollars distributed in royalties.
