Writing in The Australian, APPEA Chief Executive David Byers highlighted why signing the Our Natural Advantage petition is crucial to securing and improving the economic benefits associated with developing natural gas reserves.
“There are a small number of people inside – and a few outside trying to get in – who would have you believe that saying no to natural gas development is somehow without consequence,” Mr Byers said.
“In reality, people who hold this view are saying no to tens of thousands of new Australian jobs, the successful delivery of existing projects and the next wave of economic growth.
“Given how much is at stake right now. It is not at all surprising to see Australia’s largest investors warn of the risks presented by poor public policy and high cost structures and demand stable tax settings, efficient regulation and regulation based on science.”
