Hydraulic fracturing Community Bulletin #22

14 Jun 2019 12:07 PM | Sonia Harvey (Administrator)
Code of Practice released

The Code of Practice has been released, further strengthening protections for the environment and delivering an accountable and transparent onshore gas industry. 

The establishment of the Code means the majority of the recommendations required for exploration to commence this year have been implemented.

The Code was developed by the Northern Territory Government, working closely with the CSIRO, and peer reviewed by scientific experts from around the world.

The draft Code was out for public comment earlier this year.

The Code mandates enforceable standards and requirements for the onshore gas industry on key issues, including:

  • Well operations
  • Surface activities
  • Wastewater management
  • Methane emissions
The release of the Code of Practice supports the delivery of the 135 recommendations in the Final Report of the Scientific Inquiry into Hydraulic Fracturing in the Northern Territory.
