AGL Crib Point Gas Terminal Cancelled

COVID-19 Alpha Strain in Victoria

Mr BURGESS (Hastings)

AGL Crib Point Gas Terminal Adjournement

Mr BURGESS (Hastings) (17:22): (5725) On Monday, 8 February, Shadow Minister for Energy and Renewables Ryan Smith and I announced that a Liberal Victorian government would prevent AGL from developing a gas import terminal at Crib Point. The Andrews government’s senseless and ideological moratorium on onshore gas exploration led to Victorians being hit with a 125 per cent rise in their gas prices between 2014 and 2019, and now Daniel Andrews wants the residents of Crib Point to pay for that with industrialisation of their quiet coastal town.
