FARMERS LAUNCH LEGAL APPEAL AGAINST NARRABRI GAS PROJECT

The controversial Narrabri Gas Project has hit another hurdle, with a group of North West farmers launching a legal appeal against the state government.

The Mullaley Gas and Pipeline Accord argues the Independent Planning Commission wrongly assessed the project’s climate impacts.

It comes less than a month after the SANTOS project was approved by the federal government.

The $3.6 billion project will see 850 coal seam gas wells built in the Pilliga and could provide up to half of the state’s gas needs.
