Coal Seam Gas


Landowners Should Be Given Right to Determine Access for CSG

13 December 2013 The NSW Irrigators' Council has lodged a submission (here) with the NSW Government as part of the consultation program on the Code of Practice for Access Agreements for coal seam gas exploration and operation.

Part of the submission calls for private landowners to be given the right to determine whether to enter into such agreement.

Council Chief Executive Officer Andrew Gregson says that the NSW Government has the opportunity to please most people by agreeing with the major gas operators and the Prime Minister by allowing private landowners to determine whether they want to be party to an agreement.

"Despite appearances, there's actually pretty broad consensus on this issue.

The major gas operators say they don't want to go where they're not welcome, the Federal Government has made the same view clear and NSW Irrigators Council concurs with both.

Private landholders should have the ability to decide if they want to enter into an access agreement.

"Where private landholders choose to enter an agreement, we're very pleased with the work that we've done with the Government to provide them with minimum terms under the Code of Practice that is currently on public exhibition.

It would be implemented by changes to the Act due before the Upper House early next year. The Government should take this opportunity to further amend the Act to give private landholders a choice.

The Council's submission states:

To be characterised as an "Agreement", it must be entered into voluntarily by all parties.

NSWIC submits that there should be no obligation on a private landowner to enter into an access agreement.

That is, the landowner should have the option to decline to enter into an access agreement at their own discretion.
