The Northern Territory Government has released its plan to implement the recommendations of the independent scientific inquiry into unconventional hydraulic fracturing.
This delivers on our promise to release the plan within three months of the initial response to the inquiry.
The plan details how each of the recommendations will be implemented and is grouped under the six themes of Strengthening Regulation, Ensuring Accountable Industry Practise, Safeguarding Water and the Environment, Respecting Community and Culture, Maximising Regional Benefits and Local opportunities, and Planning for Industry.
To increase transparency the Government will develop an online portal to ensure the community has real time access to data on industry activity and environmental, social, health and cultural baseline impacts.
The Onshore Shale Gas Community and Business Reference Group were consulted on the implementation plan.
