Chris Hartcher, the Energy Minister said that, the Government needs landholders to analysis gas deposits positively. He said that, what they would like to observe if that the farmers perceive having coal joint gas on their property as a count to the worth of their land as well as not to be observed as a possible problem on their property.
He said that, farmers must be sufficiently compensated; therefore the Government is conferring a base rate with them as well as the coal seam gas industry. Mr. Hartcher said that, lots of farmers are concerned about if there is coal seam gas on their property or if it is going to be used from their property then it is going to be a burden upon them.
He doesn't think anybody needs that. He thinks the community is not just farmers although the entire community, which would desire farmers properly as well as sufficiently compensated. Farmer from the Liverpool Plains in the north-west of the state, Rosemary Nankivel, said that she is against the initiative. Rosemary Nankivel, who is too part of the Caroona Coal Action Group, said that the payments could direct to lawsuits, as gas removal impacts on aquifers for which multiple farmers depend on.
She said that, there is enough evidence going around at present which suggests that reduction of an aquifer will influence the entire catchment, so they ate looking at numerous farmers which will be impacted upon She does think that the farmer, by admitting a higher recompense by the gas firms, is putting himself into a point which will not be attractive further down the path. If a farmer acquires this, then he has to in the long-standing accept liability for the devaluation of the lands surrounding him.
