Monday, 30 October, 2011. Gas Watch 124. AGL advertises more, possibly damaging, seismic exploration for coal seam methane in Broke and Bulga.

Last time Seismic Surveys were conducted, the local road network was significantly damaged when the survey was conducted outside the Governmental approval, to the extent that the Singleton Council required that the Sydney Gas/AGL pay for the repairs.

The September Seismic proposal newsletter from coal seam methane miner AGL has kicked off its campaign to conduct seismic surveys on public roads and on private property.

Typically AGL does not identify which roads or which private property until the very last minute, usually not until after approval by the Government following upon the grossly inadequate Review of Environmental Factors procedure. Sydney Gas/AGL couldn’t be trusted to work within its approval then. What’s different now?
DO NOT SIGN AN ACCESS AGREEMENT and AGL cannot come onto your private land to pursue its seismic survey. LOCK THE GATE!
