Southern Gas Corridor
From its origin to its end, the Southern Gas Corridor (SGC) leaves a trail of corruption, destruction, and harm. The SGC flushes big profits into the coffers of despotic dictators and gas companies that are blind to human rights abuses. It runs against the goals of the Paris Agreement. All of this comes at the cost of destroyed lands and livelihoods of those who live along the pipeline route.
Narrabri Coal Bed Methane Project
During times of drought and wildfires, the Australian company Santos is pushing a project that is putting eastern Australia’s vital water resources at risk. Its Narrabri project is a threat to the water and all those who depend on it: the indigenous Gomeroi people, local farmers, residents, and the Pilliga forest.
Exxon’s deep-water drilling in front of Guyana’s coast is threatening the South American country. Guyana is one of the world's countries most endangered by rising sea levels. 80 percent of the 791,000 inhabitants live on a dip of land 1.8 m (5.1 ft) below sea level. In times of global warming and rising sea levels, Exxon, CNOOC and Hess are developing a huge oil project in Guyana.
Arctic National Wildlife Refuge
Keeping oil and gas companies away from the most sensitive areas of Alaska is a constant battle. For now, big oil and gas companies are leaving the plains and waters of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska alone. However, the State of Alaska is determined to turn large parts of the Arctic landscape into an oil and gas extraction site. The current peace is fragile for the animals and people living in the Refuge.
Oil and Gas Drilling in the Okavango Region
The beautiful Okavango Delta is under threat. The Canadian company ReconAfrica is developing an oil megaproject right next to Africa’s last, intact wetland wilderness. As the fossil age is ending, ReconAfrica is starting to drill for oil in the home of the world’s largest remaining herd of elephants.
Tilenga/Kingfisher Oil Fields and East African Crude Oil Pipeline
Total and CNOOC are sensing big money in Uganda. The companies want to produce oil in the country, and pump it all the way through savannahs, swamps and tropical forests to the Tanzanian coast. To make space for the wells and the pipeline, Total and CNOOC are forcing more than 100,000 people off their lands. At the same time, the oil giants are destroying the homes of elephants, lions, leopards, and giraffes.
Line 3 Pipeline
The Canadian Line 3 tar sands expansion pipeline in Minnesota is a catastrophe for the environment. Line 3 is Enbridge’s largest project and one of the largest crude oil pipelines in the world. Indigenous groups and local activists have been fighting the pipeline for 7 years, ever since Enbridge published its plan. They condemn the pipeline’s dangerous route through Minnesota’s sensitive rivers, lakes and tribal lands.
Oil and gas companies are wrecking the region of Northern Patagonia in Argentina for the gigantic Vaca Muerta fracking project. Over 25 companies are turning the region into a sacrifice zone the size of Belgium. With more than 1,000 drilling sites, the companies are destroying the environment, poisoning the people and fueling the climate crisis.
Pieridae Energy Ltd. is intimidating activists who have exposed the company’s difficulties to get financing. The Canadian company needs billions of dollars to build an LNG facility in Goldboro, Canada.
Coastal GasLink Pipeline
TC Energy’s fossil dreams are violating indigenous people’s human rights and destroying their land. The Canadian pipeline giant is building the 670 km (420 mi) Coastal GasLink Pipeline through the traditional lands of the Wet‘suwet‘en people in Western Canada. TC Energy never got permission from the Wet‘suwet‘en to take their land and put a pipeline on it.
Wisting Oil Field and Barents Sea
Equinor and OMV’s new oil and gas project is endangering millions of Arctic animals. Although oil production already exists in the Barents Sea, Equinor and OMV are pushing into the Arctic wilderness further than ever before.
Scarborough Gas Field and Burrup Hub
If not stopped, a gas project with a 50-year life span will destroy 40,000-year-old Aboriginal rock art. The project also threatens dolphins, whales and colorful coral reefs. In Australia’s remote North-West on the Burrup Peninsula, the Australian company Woodside wants to start up the country’s most emission-heavy new fossil fuel project: Burrup Hub.
