Gas Extraction

Unconventional Gas:

The WBBEC does not support the continuation of Coal Seam, Shale and UCG (underground coal gassification) exploration and extraction in Australian and the Wide Bay Burnett and believes that a moratorium must be placed on the industry until long term independent scientific research and monitoring demonstrates that the exploration and extraction of such gasses does not impact upon the environment, agricultural productivity and community health and wellbeing. Until such time that this can be independently demonstrated with sufficient scientific evidence, the WBBEC does not support unconventional gas as a sustainable contribution to domestic energy demands.
