Release Date: 14/12/2020


Lighter Footprints submits that a Crib Point gas terminal would be a mistake, and the facilities at Point Kembla are sufficient

  • Westernport is unspoilt, environmentally valuable and valued for its recreational uses
  • The gas terminal at Crib Point would cause considerable environmental damage
  • The local community is strongly opposed
  • The proposed gas shortfall could be addressed by other measures such as fuel switching and electrification according to the Northmore Gordon report


“Crib Point is the wrong location for this kind of large-scale industrial facility” – Greg Hunt MP
