Mixed reaction to Clarence gas deal
|Queensland gas field|
'A mining company with gas exploration licences for the Clarence Valley has just signed a multi million dollar deal with an energy company.'
Spokesman John Edwards said if the project was only for nine wells in the valley, it would not be a major concern.
"But if there's a resource discovered under any of those wells that will mean the companies will then move to the next level, which is a gas field," he said.
"We'll have dozens, possibly hundreds of gas wells clustered around in a very small area, connected to pipelines and roads.
"It's going to be horrific.'
