‘Cents-less’ gas exploration risk

LOCK THE GATE: Penola-based anti-gas expansion activist Angus Ralton stands at the iconic Blue Lake in Mount Gambier, showing his support for the Limestone Coast Protection Alliance’s ongoing campaign.

NEW claims have emerged the State Government has only banked $11m in royalties from South East gas production over the past 70 years, which is “pittance” according to the regional anti-gas movement.

Prominent regional campaigner Tony Beck said the government had now given back $6m of the $11m to Beach Energy for its new Haselgrove-3 conventional gas exploration well south of Penola.
