New South Wales Opposition Leader Michael Daley says Labor will block Santos’s proposed Narrabri coal seam gas project if it wins the state election on 23 March. He has warned that the $3bn project presents an "unacceptable risk" to water resources, farming and indigenous communities. Santos CEO Kevin Gallagher has stressed that protecting the environment and water resources is a priority for the oil and gas group. He adds that failure to develop the state’s gas resources will result in higher gas and electricity prices, as well as the loss of manufacturing jobs and investment in the state.
