Berwyndale and the Undulla Nose gasfields are situated here:
By not precisely naming the gasfield and limiting the image in its community consultation document to a small number of paddocks, it looks suspiciously like an attempt by Metgasco to conceal the bigger picture in the Berwyndale area.
The 'community consultation' document also states that Metgasco has entered into:
More than 300 voluntary landholder agreements.
These 300 land holder agreements to date appear to cover less than 50 boreholes, 63 drill cores and only two gas sites (NSW Trade and Investment: Energy & Resource MinView) with one potential production well.
However, like its "suscessful co-existence" spin, all is not quite as the community is being told.
The Northern Star, 10 June 2014, Page 4:
When asked about the inconsistency between the claims, Metgasco CEO Peter Henderson said: "We have approximately 50 land access agreements for wells, the remainder are associated with seismic programs."
Apparently Megasco believes that it is acceptable to fudge the facts during its alleged consultation process.
