frakking nonsense …

I wonder where the funds come from for this.

Dear Frack Free Kimberley Community Group

EOI – Frack Free Kimberley Community Group – Senior Campaigner

As you know the Canning Basin is estimated to have more unconventional gas than the whole of the East Coast of Australia. To get it out of the ground, fracking would have to take place. Victoria and Tasmania have fracking moratoria in place and countries like France have banned the practice because of the risks to human health and the environment.

We are seeking a full time senior campaigner who wants to work for the Frack Free Kimberley Community Group to protect our clean water and air from fracking. The right person will have extensive experience of community-led campaigns in the Kimberley or Northern Australia, experience of working in partnership with Aboriginal traditional owners and/or Aboriginal community leaders, a demonstrated ability to develop campaign strategies, has coordinated complex community actions, is a motivated and innovative media strategist and spokesperson and is able to undertake detailed research and analysis of the oil and gas industry and industry regulations.

If you are interested in this work please send a brief expression of interest (EOI) detailing why you would like to take on this position and some of your relevant experience (no more than 2 sides of an A4 page).

Please send the EOI back to us by the end of Thursday, December 17. Please email the EOI to me at this email address

Yours sincerely

Jan and the Frack Free Kimberley Team

Bore for the water used in drilling

It’s astonishing that none of the ‘usual’ crowd were seen at the Department of Mines Information sessions, but protested outside instead. Here’s one of several wells drilled already in the Canning Basin. So what’s the problem? Here’s Nicolay1, a Conoco Phillips well. kidson 104 kidson 107

The good news:

New Standard Energy, ConocoPhillips observe more shale than expected at Nicolay-1

New Standard Energy, ConocoPhillips observe more shale than expected at Nicolay-1

New Standard Energy (ASX: NSE) and ConocoPhillips (NYSE: COP) has received early indications that the target Goldwyer section at their Nicolay-1 well onshore Canning Basin is more shale bearing than originally thought.

This is consistent with the elevated gas readings observed from the mud logs whilst drilling through both the Nita and Goldwyer formations.

New Standard noted that further detailed interpretation of the full package of wireline logs together with core analysis from the coring programs will be necessary before additional clarity can be provided on the shale and source rock qualities.

Core samples from Nicolay-1 will be sent to various laboratories in Australia and around the world for a state-of-the-art analysis programme designed in collaboration with ConocoPhillips.
