The Implementation Plan responds to the Final Report recommendations from the Scientific Inquiry into Hydraulic Fracturing in the Northern Territory. To read the Inquiry report and recommendations, visit

This plan has been developed in collaboration with relevant government departments and outlines responsible agencies, actions and stages of implementation.

This plan is in two parts:

  • A high level summary of the three stages of implementation, and how and when each recommendation will be implemented.
  • The plan is supported by the list of recommendations and further detail on how each will be implemented. Both the plan and the accompanying list of recommendations are available to download.

Implementation of the plan is to strengthen regulation, ensure industry is accountable for its practices, safeguard water and the environment, respect community and culture, maximise the benefits and opportunities available to local businesses and communities, and ensure planning for future development.
