Frack-Free Victoria

The Resources Legislation Amendment (Fracking Ban) Bill 2016 (Vic) has passed through Parliament and is awaiting Royal Assent at which point it will commence immediately. The Bill will permanently ban all onshore unconventional gas exploration and development (including hydraulic fracturing and coal seam gas), and extends the moratorium on conventional onshore gas exploration and development to 30 June 2020. The Minster will be empowered to buy back any outstanding, but now invalid, licences for onshore gas exploration and production.
