Land Access Principles

Land Access Principles banner

When we are working with you and carrying out gas production or exploration activities on your land, we will be guided by the following overarching principles.

AGL's Landholder Access Principles

We will act with honesty and integrity. We believe that trust is the most important part of establishing good landholder relationships.

We will pay reasonable legal costs incurred by you and compensation for your time. We recognise the time and effort you spend dealing with us.

We will pay you fair and equitable annual compensation for the use of your land. In addition, we will look for opportunities to compensate you in other useful ways.

We will respect you and your land.

  • We will protect the environment and minimise our impact by meeting or exceeding statutory obligations, codes of practice and AGL company standards.
  • We will minimise noise, dust and light from our operations to the extent possible, and we will respond as soon as possible if you contact us with a concern.
  • We will avoid disturbing or interfering with your stock or use of land. If AGL or its contractors cause any loss or damage to your land, gardens, improvements or stock from its activities, we will pay for any loss or damage.
  • We will rehabilitate your land in consultation with you, and make sure that you are satisfied with the final rehabilitation.
  • At your request we will install cattle grids on the access roads we are using.
  • We will always leave gates exactly as we found them i.e. the open or closed position unless told otherwise.

We will protect your water resources.

  • We will carry out a baseline survey of your property’s water sources before we carry out our activities.
  • We commit to make good any direct impact to water quality or quantity in your bores, dams or other water storages, in the highly unlikely event that damage is caused by our operations.

Safety is AGL’s priority. We will carry out our operations in accordance with best practice safety standards.
