NSW drilling ban first of its kind

March 2024 The statewide ban on offshore drilling in NSW has dashed hopes for other such projects, extending beyond other the measures of other regions. Supported by coastal communities and environmentalists, the ban prohibits petroleum and mineral exploration and recovery, in state waters. Premier Chris Minns has defended the move, acknowledging the impact on potential projects. The ban has strengthened the pushback against gas company Advent Energy’s PEP-11 development. The ban is also seen to reflect earlier Coalition efforts, prompting accusations of policy adoption. Legal complexities surrounding coastal jurisdiction have led to caution in previous attempts to legislate on the matter.
