Rosalie and Simon Hunt fear they may have to de-stock 10,000 sheep from their property, “Euroa”, near Nevertire, if the Pilliga pipeline goes ahead.

Mr Hunt has been told the construction phase will require him to empty as many as 10 paddocks while the pipeline is built. He said he may have to sell the sheep, whose bloodline runs almost 120 years on the property.

He said when he asked the APA representative why they couldn’t run the pipeline through the stock route, he was told “because it may hurt the flora and fauna”.

“My immediate retort was, ‘What about my flora and fauna?’.”

Helicopter surveying for a major gas pipeline that passes by and sometimes cuts through some of the nation’s most famous sheep and cotton farms and three inland river systems started this week.

The 450 kilometre pipeline connecting the Santos gas project in the Pilliga to the main Moomba pipeline at Booberoi is causing concern among landholders affected by the proposed route.

Already, Warren Council has voted unanimously not to support the pipeline construction or any alternative gas exploration in the Warren shire.

Warren mayor, Rex Wilson, said if push came to shove with the state government on the pipeline, the shire “will not co-operate” and will use every means to delay the project. Some farmers have vowed to padlock their farm gates to stop construction vehicles.

The pipeline is seen as crucial to the Santos project in the Pilliga, which hopes to supply enough gas for 500,000 homes and 15,000 businesses. It is being built by the APA Group on behalf of a Santos subsidiary. The project is up to the environmental impact statement stage after APA started negotiations with landholders and affected councils.

The birthplace of the 'destructive distillation' process

This humble shed at the Warren Race Course is the birthplace of the GDT ‘destructive distillation’ process.

Work was started by Denis Randall in September 2009 to prove his theory of how old car, truck and oversized tyres can be turned into usable and potentially profitable quantities of oil, carbon and steel.

The location was offered by Warren Council as their contribution to help the infant enterprise, a confidence that has been repaid many times over today as the GDT plant employs 17 full time workers and is the second largest employee in the Shire, after the Shire itself.

The Warren Race Course is more of a civic gathering point that most country race courses, is known as the ‘Randwick of the West’ and is superbly equipped for a variety of different functions from rock concerts to race meetings and with fully equipped commercial kitchens and auditoriums is hired for functions ranging from weddings to birthday parties.

A short time after Denis Randal got underway with his work he was joined by Paul McKay, a Warren local who was an ex-Mayor and proved to be a tower of strength in the early days. Sadly Paul passed away in 2014, an event which is a subject of sadness to GDT.

The work at the showgrounds was transferred to a shed in Banks Street, Warren after nine months (which is across the road from Denis Randall’s house), which still used today as a workshop and storage area, after the processing facilities was re-established at its present location at the Warren Transfer Station.

Fantastic to see that a +Warren NSW cotton grower is amongst the finalists for +Monsanto Company's Grower of the Year and AgriRisk's High Achiever of the Year in this year's Australian Cotton Industry Awards.

Andrew Dickson, ‘Marebone’, Warren NSW is amongst six contenders for this year's title. +Cotton Australia CEO, Adam Kay, said the finalists were selected based on their contributions to the cotton industry across a wide range of areas, including farming best practice, research and development, innovation, leadership and industry advocacy.

"Connectivity problems are holding back adoption of new technology", Adam Kay says. (+ABC News: Dominique Schwartz)
"Australia's cotton industry is a world leader and has embraced new technology, but it needs better connectivity to stay globally competitive", Cotton Australia CEO Adam Kay said.

"We're seeing already autonomous tractors and spread rigs that are going to be relying on the GPS signals, we've got moisture probes in the field constantly sending messages back to the farm manager to help drive decisions on irrigation … and you've got drone data coming in," he said.
