Update on PEP 170
Following its review of the Parliamentary Inquiry into Unconventional Gas in Victoria, the Victorian Government announced on 30 August 2016 a permanent ban on the exploration and development of all onshore unconventional gas in Victoria, including hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) and coal seam gas.
The Victorian Government will also legislate to extend the current moratorium on the exploration and development of conventional onshore gas until 30 June 2020.
