Beach Energy announces drilling site

TOO CLOSE: Vignerons Emma and Steven Raidis stand on their vineyard, which is just a “stone’s throw” from the drilling site.

COONAWARRA vignerons and anti-gas mining campaigners have expressed disbelief that a proposed $12m conventional gas well will be drilled just a “stone’s throw” from established vineyards.

This follows Beach Energy announcing the location of its controversial Haselgrove 3 gas well, which will be about 8km south of Penola on state-owned forestry land.

The drilling site will be located near the boundary of the world famous Coonawarra wine district and adjacent the new $80m Union Dairy Company processing plant.

According to Beach Energy, the site will be visible
