The Scientific Inquiry Into Hydraulic Fracturing in the Northern Territory Begins

Yesterday, the Scientific Inquiry Into Hydraulic Fracturing in the Northern Territory began public consultation sessions in Alice Springs. NSW Land and Environment Justice Rachel Pepper will chair the Inquiry which seeks to ‘assess the scientific evidence to determine the nature and extent of the environmental impacts and risks, including the cumulative impacts and risks, associated with hydraulic fracturing of unconventional reservoirs and the associated activities in the Northern Territory’.[1] The report will identify gaps in scientific knowledge and causes of environmental risk as well as the social context in which hydraulic fracturing operates within in the Northern Territory.
