Oil and gas risk – Letter to HB Today

Whilst Craig Foss feels there are huge opportunities around the oil & gas industry (Gas & oil ‘key to Bay growth” 1/5/13) he also recognises that there are huge risks. Chris Tremain’s ad (Napier Mail 7/11/12) state they a both “worked with the Minister of Energy to remove our Hawkes Bay aquifers from exploration”.

Chris Tremain Ad

Clearly they both felt that that the risk of fracking through our aquifers was too hig a risk to take and I welcome this statement. What we need is fresh thinking on the furtue of Hawkes Bay, and not the introduction of a short term, 20th century industry such as oil & gas.
