“Thanks to NT Labor, Tamboran has moved one step closer to contaminating our water and wrecking our climate. But they’re not there yet.


Tamboran doesn’t have agreement from Traditional Owners, they don’t have agreement from landholders to build their pipeline, they don’t have approvals to build their gas processing plant in the Barkly near the wells, and they don’t have final investment decision.”


“These next few weeks are crucial. The Greens secured the water trigger in Federal Parliament. What is federal Labor going to do? We need Tanya Plibersek to use the water trigger now. This water is belongs to all Territorians. We can’t let Tamboran wreck it for a profit.”


“NT Labor has made it clear again: they’re backing in the fossil fuel corporations during a climate crisis. Unlike Territory Labor and the CLP, the Greens aren’t afraid to stand up to gas corporations in order to protect our water and our climate - because we don’t take their money. We are the only party against fracking in the NT.”


"We have an integrity crisis in the Territory. Our environment minister fronted a press conference with fracking company Tamboran celebrating the NT government signing a deal to buy their fracked gas - and then a few weeks later gave her “independent” sign off on their project saying there was no significant environmental risks to the project. We desperately need some oversight in Parliament.”


“Instead of backdoor supply deals and sign off without independent environmental checks, we need these gas corporations to be properly scrutinised and eventually stopped. That only happens with Green in the NT Parliament after the election.”
