Cancel the Gas and Oil Tenders in the Otway Basin

Polluters want to drill for fossil fuels in the coastal waters of south west Victoria

The Andrews Labor Government has released five new oil and gas exploration blocks in the offshore Otway Basin in state waters, extending from Port Campbell to the South Australian border. They are part of the national 2018 Petroleum Exploration Acreage Release.

Climate science makes it abundantly clear that time is running out if we want to avoid catastrophic climate change.

The government should cancel the tender process for offshore oil and gas exploration in the Otway Basin in western Victoria.
