Thanks eastadl. Yeah rents and house prices are dropping. I got a decent deal in the CBD with all utilities included where a year or two ago it would have been 100 or 200 hundred more a week. Hopefully I. Two years when I can buy the market will have dropped much lower again. It's a great time to be in the market as a first time buyer!

I remember talk of this like 15 years ago.... Back then it was considered "Visionary". Pockets of higher densities were planned along the route too.

The light rail corridor reservation is along Tiger Brennan Drive. Not the Stuart Highway. Barneson Boulevard was originally supposed to be a tunnel.

We look forward to seeing you at the Northern Territory Major Projects Conference.

The building market has also slowed down since July. The Seabreezes Apartments in Nightcliffe was halted and 30 workers were laid off. Seems like there is an over supply in the market or something. I guess Myer is holding off not just because of the market down turn but because well Myer has been downsizing anyway.

Doesn't really belong here but i don't know where else to put it:

"Should Darwin City Council be abolished and the state government just run the entire top end?"

Compared to the rest of the city CBD that area looks quite low, like during a storm combined with high tide won't that area like flood?

Like for the existing use of land a bit of water won't matter too much but for residential buildings and retail etc it may be more of a problem?

Yes.

Some distance beyond the northern extremity of Frances Bay is the suburb called The Narrows, at the entrance to RAAF Darwin. On a map it is a fair way inland from the water on both sides. The Arafura Sea being on the other.

However I was told many years ago that a combination of king tidal and cyclonic conditions sees The Narrows become just that.

Hardly definitive, but just for some imagery, here's a few indicators of sea level:
at +5metres

at +9metres

at +20metres

This might help with new resi projects in the NT as it will create over 6,000 new jobs???
Or at least fill the existing oversupply?!?

Massive NT onshore gas find

ASHLEY MANICAROS, NT News
February 16, 2017 12:30am
Subscriber only

A GAS field potentially five times the size of Inpex’s Browse Basin — which could create 6300 jobs — has been identified in the Territory.


The results, revealed by Origin Energy, mean potential royalties from onshore gas could clear the $875 million NT deficit and underpin the economy for multiple decades.

But the Beetaloo Basin, which is about 500km southeast of Darwin, cannot be developed due to the Gunner Government’s moratorium on hydraulic fracturing.

Chief Minister Michael Gunner said Wednesday the moratorium would stay until the inquiry into hydraulic fracturing is complete.

“We have imposed a moratorium on fracking until an independent, expert panel led by Justice Rachel Pepper completes its investigation,” he said. “After we receive the panel’s findings we will either ban fracking completely or allow it in highly-regulated, tightly prescribed areas.”

Origin integrated gas chief executive officer David Baldwin said the company had submitted its findings from drilling and seismic results across more than 10,000 sq km and production data from the Amungee drill site to the Territory Government. Origin started its testing before the moratorium on hydraulic fracturing was put in place.

The Amungee well was tested at 2.1km depth with 11 horizontal fracture stimulation stages across a 600m area. Over a 57-day period it returned an average of 1.1 million cubic feet of gas per day.

Deloitte Access Economics found onshore shale gas production has the potential to drive significant economic growth in the Territory including a $961 million increase in government revenues and the creation of up to 6300 jobs.

Origin’s report estimates the original gas in place is 61 trillion cubic feet across a 1,698 sq km area with a contingent resource of 6.6Tcf. This towers over the Mereenie gas fields in Central Australia which have produced 240 billion cubic feet of gas since 1984.

Origin’s joint venture partners Falcon Oil and Gas were more robust about the find issuing a statement to the Irish stock exchange indicating the original gas in place was 146Tcf. Inpex’s Ichthys field is estimated to contain more than 12 trillion cubic feet of gas. The NT does not gain any gas royalties from the Inpex project because it is offshore.

“The Beetaloo Basin is the Territory’s most prospective onshore basin for unconventional gas and our test results further confirm the region’s outstanding shale gas potential,” Mr Baldwin said.

“Further exploration and appraisal activity will be required to progress our understanding of the play and mature contingent of resources to reserves.”

The Chamber of Commerce NT acting-chief executive Brian O’Gallagher has called on the Gunner Government to get on with making a decision on hydraulic fracturing. “We don’t want this to be a missed opportunity,” he said.

“We’d like to see a sustainable onshore gas industry which along with Defence could underpin the entire Northern Territory economy.”

I am really surprised Darwin isn't a world power city by now.. its proximity to Southeast Asia and Asia.. am I missing something here? Every other large city in Australia just seems so far away from the world...
