No gas drilling off NSW coast

Dear Prime Minister and NSW Premier,

I call on your Governments to take steps to cancel the offshore gas and oil exploration licence off the coast of Newcastle, the Central Coast and Sydney's Northern Beaches and to prohibit future offshore oil and gas development. 


  • An offshore gas exploration licence, PEP11, is currently in effect off the coast between Newcastle, the Central Coast and Sydney's Northern Beaches.  

  • Historical and planned seismic testing has been shown to have a detrimental impact on whale communication and navigation and on local marine biodiversity. 

  • Offshore gas and oil exploration and development puts at risk local fishing and tourism industries that rely on a healthy ocean and vibrant marine and coastal environment. 

  • Offshore drilling is a risky process that has failed many times in Australia and around the world with massive ecological and economic consequences. 

I request that you take action to:Your petitioners request that the Parliament:


  • Prohibit future offshore gas and oil exploration and development off the NSW coastline. 

  • Support the phasing out of all fossil fuel extraction in NSW and a transition to clean, renewable energy.

    The return to the community is negligible compared to the local and planetary risks.

    Gas fields shouldn’t be in anyone’s backyard. They’re a potential environmental disaster, and burning gas contributes to climate change. Instead of governments and the private sector wasting time and money investigating new fossil fuels developments, they should be investing in the technology we need to transition to 100% renewable.

    You say your for the people,you say you listen,I have find that hard to believe as my future will not look so bright if people in these seats just go about doing whatever.

    Please stop think and listen as well as you hear.

    What will my future old if you keep doing whatever.

    The ocean is for us all to enjoy not to be poked and drilled.

    The ocean gives us life not take that a way from us.

    Listen to children as our future matters
