1 Australia is exporting two-thirds of its gas overseas. Malcolm Turnbull needs to put a cap on exports to provide immediate relief on prices.
2 Does AGL accept AEMO’s projection in its June 2018 Gas Statement of Opportunities that there are no supply gaps forecast before 2030?
3 Will the marine literature review incorporate case studies on the impacts of FSRUs already in operation in similar environments, including the impacts of entrainment, discharge, marine noise and accidents/pollution?
4 Is AGL going to offset any mangove and seagrass damage/loss with restoration so that fish stocks,breeding and coastal endangered bird populations are guaranteed survival at current or better populations levels and no loss of migration rest sites and flyways.What bond restoration facilites and compensation fund is AGL setting up to demonstrate respect and integrity for sensitive ecosystems exposed to the massive intrusion planned by AGL at Crib point?
We are sorry to hear you do not feel like we are effectively undertaking community consultation. We have been consulting with key stakeholders including people living and working near the site, community groups and the Victorian and Australian governments since July 2017.
We understand that not everyone would like to engage in a forum-type format. There have been over 30 public community consultations, held in locations including Crib Point, Hastings, Balnarring, Blind Bight, Cowes, Cardinia, and Nar Nar Goon with both supporters and those who oppose the project.
We have been sharing environmental studies online and answering questions received from supporters and opponents.
As the feasibility phase of any project advances, it is usual for people within the community to become interested at different stages, as it becomes more relevant to them and despite our earlier efforts they feel not enough consultation has been done.
We will continue to provide opportunities to engage and involve any stakeholders in the assessment process – it will be an ongoing activity.
Throughout the Environment Effects Statement (EES) process the are many opportunities for the local community to feedback that will be considered in the ongoing refinement of the project design, including construction and operational stages.
If you would like to sign up to our mailing list, we can keep you up to date with all community consultation efforts. Send us an email at AGLCommunity@agl.com.au
