Urgent Action: Strike's Natta Seismic expansion
Strike Energy is working on a 20+ year Gasfield development called Greater Erregulla, in the Irwin/Mingenew/Three Springs area of WA's Mid West. They have not told the communities in the area how many wells it will drill in total, and how far out they will expand in future. And now they're also lobbying the McGowan Government to be able to export gas from this area(screenshot from news above). How about farmland, not gasland?!
They've submitted multiple parts of their plan to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA), but new plans keep popping up. Where will it end?
The latest plan before the EPA is a new exploration project, the Natta 3D seismic survey that involves thumper trucks over farmland and bushland, over an area of 15,854 hectares (see map below).
Tell the EPA today if and why you object to this project.
Tick the box that you want them to Assess as a Public Environmental Review (PER), together with all of Strike's plans in the area.
Make sure to click 'Submit' on the final page after clicking continue.
We can’t leave this up to a private assessment between the EPA and the gas corporation! Deadline: this Thursday 9 September, at midnight!

Take Action: Stop Strike's Seismic plan
Did you know a gas company plans to clear hundreds of hectares of farmland and native bush so it can conduct seismic tests in WA's Mid West?

WA’s Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) is asking for your comments on whether to assess the 28,000 hectare ‘Ocean Hill’ seismic survey by Strike Energy.
The impacted area where Strike want to explore for gas covers many farms and extremely biodiverse and rare wildflower country near Eneabba in the Mid West.

June 19, 2020: New seismic surveys threaten Aboriginal Heritage and important ecology
Planned seismic surveys that will search for gas north of Perth threaten Aboriginal Heritage sites, important ecological communities, and tourism, according to Lock the Gate Alliance Western Australia.
Following a successful campaign that led to Western Australia’s Environmental Protection Authority agreeing to hold a public review in response to Beach Energy’s plan to conduct a seismic survey in the Mid West, Lock the Gate WA is now calling on the EPA to do the same for Mineral Resources’ “Raven” proposal.Read more
Strong opposition to EPA conducting Mid West seismic surveys in secret
THURSDAY, April 16, 2020: Hundreds of concerned Western Australians have called on the state’s Environmental Protection Authority to publicly and transparently assess the massive 97,000 hectare 3D seismic testing plan for the Mid West.
The surveys, which are looking for gas, would stretch across the shires of Irwin, Three Springs, Mingenew, and Carnamah.
Up to 1000 hectares of vegetation would also be cleared just for the seismic trucks to pass through.Read more
