Whitebark Energy Ltd (ASX:WBE) has welcomed the WA Government’s fracturing implementation plan which charts steps to be undertaken to incorporate recommendations of a scientific enquiry into regulations.

This marks the end of the ban on onshore fracking and companies may now submit applications to the EPA for review.

The field of the Warro Gas Project has been appraised by the drilling, fracking and testing of four wells which have confirmed the presence of a substantial gas resource.
