AJP Victoria's Submission to shut down the seismic blast survey for gas in the Otway Basin has now been put forward.
The first step in oil and gas exploration is seismic blast testing. In this process, powerful air guns fire loud blasts of compressed air every 10 to 15 seconds to survey seabeds for fossil fuels. This process effects the health of our oceans, the physiology of many marine mammals and kills countless numbers of plankton and shellfish.
