Benefits to the community
The exploration sites have been chosen with these considerations in mind. It is anticipated there will be negligible impact from the short-term operations of the planned surface equipment. In addition, any short-term gas flow is expected to be minimal and all will be measured to ensure operations remain within safety and approved guidelines.
The planned operations are expected to have a positive impact on the local economy in a variety of ways including but not limited:
- Direct employment for construction and remediation of operational sites
- Indirect employment from increased activity and use of services before, during and after operations
- Fees, taxes, rental payments and land purchases
