Santos pushes ahead with plans to lay pipeline in Barossa offshore gas project

The Tiwi people have expressed their anger at a Santos announcement that the company plans to start laying one of the pipelines for its Barossa offshore gas project. The project involves drilling of gas in the Timor sea and piping it to Darwin for processing. Tiwi people are concerned the approval of the project is threatening the environment and cultural way of their life. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2023/oct/21/santos-angers-tiwi-people-as-it-pushes-ahead-with-plans-to-lay-pipeline-in-barossa-offshore-gas-project

      We cannot continue with such devastating activities if we are going to avoid the worst impacts of the climate crisis

        Santos should mind it's reputation and be decisive on better climate friendly means

          It is important for companies like Santos to consider the potential impact their projects may have on local communities and the environment. The concerns of the Tiwi people should be taken seriously and addressed through open communication and collaboration. It is important to find a balance between economic development and the preservation of cultural heritage and natural resources.

                          This can harm the environment by increasing greenhouse gas emissions and potentially damaging marine ecosystems. 😟
