What country would not have a national policy of a gas reservation, stipulating a certain percentage be retained for local consumption?
Most of us cannot believe that would be a standard and sensible standard so that our farmers and businesses have good supplies at competitive costs.
This is how bad it is – one serious consideration to set up floating terminals to import (our) gas back to Australia (at what would be a cheaper price).
Government exists to protect and promote Australia – so come on Malcolm. Time to do some really good stuff on renewables and our finite natural resources.
