Geelong can be a renewable energy hub.
Dangerous, polluting and a risk to our Bay
Viva Energy plans to build a massive gas import terminal across from their refinery in Corio Bay. It would be 300 metres, almost as long as Cunningham Pier.
The terminal would import gas from around Australia or the world, which could include ‘fracked’ gas.
Gas is a dangerous and polluting fuel that contributes to the climate crisis.
Gas is also highly explosive and many locals are concerned about safety. In other parts of Australia, gas terminals are located up to 7 kilometres from residential housing.
We’re also worried about fishing and the threat to life in our Bay. The Victorian government has rejected a similar gas terminal in Westernport Bay because it posed “unacceptable risks” to the marine environment.
We need your help
Geelong Renewables Not Gas is a group of locals concerned about this gas terminal plan. We’re made up of people worried about the impact on fishing and boating, about safety for North Shore residents, about environmental concerns and the climate crisis.
