A ‘National Interest Test' For Gas Exports

As Australia makes the transition to becoming the world’s largest Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) exporter, a Shorten Labor Government will introduce a Domestic Gas National Interest Test for new LNG facilities to ensure exporting natural gas is in the interests of all Australians.

The Liberals have refused to recognise the impact that soaring LNG exports are having on Australian businesses, especially manufacturers.

Our National Interest Test will help Australia’s gas exports continue to flourish while ensuring that all the economic costs and benefits, including those impacting manufacturers, are considered when assessing LNG project expansions.

Australia stands to reap huge rewards from our growing LNG export industry.

Only Labor can be trusted to ensure that these benefits flow to the entire Australian community, including Australian industry.
