04 NEWS THURSDAY MARCH 29 2018 CAVE01Z01MA - V1 THE inquiry into Fracking presented its Final Report to the Northern Territory Government on Tuesday. It found that no industry is without risk, and any onshore shale gas industry is no exception. However, it is the Panels opinion, expressed in the Final Report, that if all of the recommendations are implemented, the identified risks associated with any onshore shale gas industry can be mitigated or reduced to an acceptable level, and in some cases, the risks can be eliminated. The Independent Scientific Inquiry into Hydraulic Fracturing of Onshore Unconventional Reservoirs in the Northern Territory is the culmination of 15 months work by the Inquiry. Inquiry Chair Justice Rachel Pepper said this Report provides recommendations to mitigate to acceptable levels the identified risks associated with any onshore shale gas development in the NT if the Government lifts the moratorium. Justice Pepper said that while the Inquirys scope was broader than that of previous inquiries into unconventional gas in the Northern Territory, the Inquiry nevertheless built upon the previous bodies of work. In addition, this Inquiry had a mandate to consult widely, unlike previous inquiries and reviews. The Inquiry has taken its mandate to consult widely very seriously through its stakeholder engagement, livestreamed public hearings and community forums, held throughout the Territory. Justice Pepper said the Panel has made findings and recommendations in its Final Report based on the best most recent and relevant available evidence, which included the views of the community expressed during the consultation process. Her Honour said that it was not the role of the Inquiry to Fracking report release Risk can be mitigated This poster, titled Vision Check was part of the Power Posters exhibition at the Art Shed Picture: FRANCA BARRACLOUGH recommend whether or not the moratorium in NT is to be lifted. The decision whether or not to retain the ban on hydraulic fracturing in the Northern Territory is a political decision that rests with the Government alone, she said. Satirical show at Art Shed AN exhibition which continued the momentum of a recent protest show in Darwin attracted 150 people, in another effort to highlight the risks of fracking. Darwinites had the opportunity last month to view Lies, Damned Lies and Fracking while Centralian satirists put on Power Posters last week. Some of the works featured in the show at the Art Shed were from the Darwin group, Little Pricks, while locals made their own posters for the Alice Springs outing. The power of their works combines extensive research and knowledge about the fracking industry and the political forces influencing the fracking decision, said artist Franca Barraclough, who curated the Alice Springs exhibition. Combining multiple preexisting images from pop culture with recognisable symbols (they got) the point across quickly and with punch, she said. For example Therese Ritchie, Gas in the wind, 2018 which replaces Scarlet and Rhett (from Gone with the Wind) in a loving embrace with Gina Rinehart and Adam Giles. The exhibition is now showing in Katherine. [V] Off er applicable for private customers, Bronze and Silver fl eet customers, and primary producers only.
