This will allow SANTOS to continue the exploration study prior to the development of the Narrabri Gas Project. The conditions of consent include the requirement for the applicant to revise Groundwater Monitoring and Modelling Plan prior to the commencement of drilling.
SANTOS has entered into a MOU for the Narrabri Gas Project which is reported to contain 850 wells. The Secretary's Environment Assessment Requirements have now been published but will be published here in due course.
