Northern Territory moratorium
Fracking was the subject of an independent scientific inquiry in the Northern Territory.
The inquiry's final report, released in April 2018, confirmed that fracking can be done safely. Following this, the Northern Territory Government lifted its moratorium on fracking, allowing us to get back on the ground in the Beetaloo.
Following their lifting of the moratorium on fracking in 2018, we've been working with the Northern Territory government as it seeks to implement all 135 recommendations of the scientific inquiry.
Origin’s onshore exploration activities in the Northern Territory are ensuring early benefits are shared with host Traditional Owners, host pastoral leaseholders and the local communities of Daly Waters and Elliot.
