Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association (APPEA) is considering a campaign to Promote "Fracking or Fraccing" by the coal seam gas industry.
Read here

The center of their campaign will be focused on the chemicals used in the fraccing process,read what they promote to Australians

In the US, BTEX chemicals (benzene, tolulene, ethylbenzene and xylenes) have been used in fraccing fluids. But these chemicals are not used in Australian fraccing operations. Indeed Queensland and NSW have banned the use of BTEX chemicals in fraccing, and APPEA supports these bans.

Now in this briefing report by the National Toxics Network Australia,BTEX chemicals have been found on numerous occasions.

In October 2010, traces of BTEX chemicals were found at an Arrow Energy fracking operation in Queensland. Arrow Energy confirmed that benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene had been found in well water associated with its coal-seam gas operation at Moranbah, west of Mackay17

The ABC reported the story here

When you look at the board of Directors at APPEA and the corporations they represent you will notice that as always it's the $$ before anything.

In Australia the CSG - fraccing industry is about to go crazy.

In the next 10 or 20 years regional Queensland will see the number of wells rise from 4,000 to 30,000.

We must stand and fight around world to stop this practice.

And theres this gem,its all about Chinas needs of course,APPEA 's Belinda Robinson,

This means that over a 30-year project life, such a project could avoid nearly 1.1 billion tonnes of CO2, which is more than double Australia’s total annual greenhouse gas emissions. And each of Gladstone’s four projects is expected to export more than 10 million tonnes per year.

And the money,we cant forget that, Note CSIRO data is quoted

Australia has a lot of CSG: as much as 250 trillion cubic feet according to the CSIRO, which is enough to power a city of 1 million people for 5000 years.

Of course they know how much is there,more importantly how much its worth,CSIRO Chief DR Megan Clark is ex ROTHSCHILDS.

They are going to rape our country.

Yes true mate,but csg is a whole different ball game.When fat cats like Mining magnate Clive Palmer DONT want to make money by jumping on the csg bandwagon,it makes you wonder

Mining magnate Clive Palmer has launched a scathing attack on Australia's coal seam gas industry, saying the technology is unproven and could have a devastating environmental impact.

and further down he says this

Speaking to the National Party's Federal Council in Canberra, Mr Palmer said a leading Chinese firm had raised issues with him about the Australian industry, saying extraction techniques they abandoned 20 years ago are still being used here.

And yet they claim 'New technology'.

They are stepping it up to 'gangrape' our resources from us then!
