In a bid for economic growth, the NT Government has commissioned the Hawke Report into the assessment of the environmental risks and actual environmental impacts of hydraulic fracturing and the effectiveness of mitigation measures. With existing reserves of natural gas and oil diminishing, efforts are being made to find and exploit other sources of energy. One source being examined is coal seam gas. Coal seam gas is essentially methane, which is the main component of natural gas.

Methane is often found in conjunction with coal and the fact that it is highly explosive is one of the dangers traditionally associated with coal mining. Considerable reserves of onshore hydrocarbon deposits lie under the NT, pilot projects have commenced and there are plans for the larger-scale extraction of this gas; however, several negative side effects associated with these operations have become apparent and the current NT government have imposed a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing. 

Investigate the potential for the use of hydraulic fracturing in the extraction of onshore deposits of hydrocarbon resources in the NT.
Investigate the impact of hydraulic fracturing on existing farming operations, ground water quality, and other activities in the area.
Discuss the first two points, including your views on whether or not the imposition of the moratorium of hydraulic fracturing was a good idea.
