BY LOUISE BOURKE
he Coal Seam Gas (CSG) mining company that holds the license to drill for gas at St Peters has shelved plans to explore the site. Dart Energy made the announcement to the Stock Exchange late last week, indicating the company had no plans to drill at the site and that it was “committed to open
and transparent engagement” with the community. But those against CSG mining in St Peters say they are relieved but not completely convinced that there are no plans to explore the St Peters site for gas in the future. “Only when the approval to drill at the St Peters site is officially revoked, will we drop our cynicism and then begin to think about a quiet celebration,” said Jacinta
Green from Stop CSG Sydney. “[They] should acknowledge that CSG mining is inappropriate for urban areas,” said a Greens NSW spokesperson, Jeremy Buckingham. Dart Energy’s announcement follows a decision by Marrickville Council last week to prohibit CSG mining as a condition of a pending development application for the St Peters site.
