The coal and gas industry is too dangerous to health of people and the
Land, and should become obsolete if people wish to continue living in
this country -- in the WORLD for that matter.
Therefore,the further destruction to land and water supply of building
a pipeline across farmers' land, and forests, etc is totally uncalled
for,
Please allow this Project Approval to lapse. Think about the safety of
Air Land and Water -- the safety of our farmers, and our children.

This pipeline traverses ten local government areas, crossing several
rivers and beautiful farmland and bushland between the Queensland
border and Newcastle.

It passes by the Pilliga, and the company behind the pipeline is eager
to transport CSG drilled from the Pilliga to Queensland or Newcastle.
It passes through rich cropping lands south of Moree and on the
Liverpool Plains
It crosses the Namoi River five times, and the Hunter River on the
outskirts of Aberdeen, Morpeth and Tomago, cutting the wetlands of Ash
Island to the North Arm of the Hunter River on Kooragang Island.
The company claims there are no changes to the environmental or
amenity impacts, but that ignores changes that happen over time. New
ecological communities have been listed as endangered, National Parks
have been extended, new towns have emerged and existing towns have
grown, new farming enterprises have been embarked upon, and the
justification for the project has dramatically changed.

The landscape through which this pipeline proposes to run has changed
over the last decade and with it, so has the impact this pipeline will
inflict on people, the environment and local economies. It is not
acceptable for the Department of Planning to extend the deadline for
this consent by another five years.

The proposed pipeline is planned to cross directly through our family's
farm and will be a dangerous risk to the health and well-being of my
family, sharefarmer and staff.
The pipeline will be installed through our irrigation infrastructure
causing production issues and detrimental soil health impacts and it's
not clear what access we will have to the land on top of the pipeline.
There's plenty of evidence on the internet about what happens to farm
vehicles if they accidentally contact buried gas pipes and I ask you
this? Would you put the health and well-being of your family and staff
at risk?
Extending the approval for this pipeline which would have already been
constructed if it was a good idea and viable simply amounts to
allowing multinational companies to gamble on the lives of hardworking
Australians and their families as the companies try to extract a few
more millions out of the stock
Market.

I object to any extension being given to the Hunter gas pipeline that was
approved ten years ago and given a ten year deadline to begin
construction or the approval would lapse.

These lapse deadlines are crucial protections against the interminable
anxiety and uncertainty of major resource projects that hang over
land, communities and local economies.

The ten year deadline for the Hunter gas pipeline will run out in
February 2019, but the company is seeking a change to its approval to
extend the deadline for another five years.

This pipeline traverses ten local government areas, crossing several
rivers and beautiful farmland and bushland between the Queensland
border and Newcastle.

It passes by the Pilliga, and the company behind the pipeline is eager
to transport CSG drilled from the Pilliga to Queensland or Newcastle.

This pipeline application should be allowed to lapse as it should.

It would traverse ten local government areas, crossing several rivers
and beautiful farmland and bushland between the Queensland border and
Newcastle.

It would pass through the rich cropping lands south of Moree and on
the Liverpool Plains. And also cross the Namoi River five times, and
the Hunter River on the outskirts of Aberdeen, Morpeth and Tomago,
thereby cutting through the wetlands of Ash Island to the North Arm of
the Hunter River on Kooragang Island.

The impact of this proposed pipeline would be to impose a ugly,
climate-wrecking disgrace on the lands it would cross. And interfere
with farming, wetlands and local beauty spots. And since CSG is a
fossil fuel, and as such must be phased out in the next few years to
meet climate change mitigation targets, it is also absolutely
unnecessary.

Please ensure that the application to Modification 1 is denied and the
future of our precious environment is secured from this threat.

This proposed pipeline traverses ten local government areas, crossing
several rivers and beautiful farmland and bushland between the
Queensland border and Newcastle. A spill from this pipeline would
create an environmental disaster for any of the environments it passes
through.
We cannot afford to use any further fossil fuel resources if we are to
prevent any further climate warming. The proposed pipeline would
enable millions of tons of carbon dioxide to be burnt putting even
more pressure on our climate and leading to untold harmful
consequences.

I object to the pipeline as it will run through farmlands, state parks,

I urge you to let the approval for building this pipeline lapse.
CSG SHOULD NOT BE EXTRACTED. It has shown to lead to further carbon
emissions. It may be short term financial gain but the impact of
carbon emissions on climate is well understood. Australia is already
facing climate change that is detrimental not only to our agriculture
but the well being of the nation. With increasing rise in temperature
Australia is in danger of extensive desertification and our main food
producers will find it harder and harder to remain sustainable and
productive. Farmers, whose land this pipeline will traverse are
against this approval. Please listen to the local community and
experts in the field and do not give in to big Business and their
lobbyists.

Although I live in WA, I am an Australian citizen and am deeply concerned

In this instance, I object to the attempt by a business to extend the
deadline for the construction of the CSG pipeline by another five
years.

This pipeline traverses ten local government areas, crossing several
rivers and beautiful farmland and bushland between the Queensland
border and Newcastle.

1) It passes by the Pilliga, and the company behind the pipeline is

Newcastle.

2) It passes through rich cropping lands south of Moree and on the
Liverpool Plains

3) It crosses the Namoi River five times, and the Hunter River on the
outskirts of Aberdeen, Morpeth and Tomago, cutting the wetlands of Ash
Island to the North Arm of the Hunter River on Kooragang Island.

The company claims there are no changes to the environmental or
