Water is an essential part of the coal seam gas production process.

Groundwater Research

Improving our knowledge and understanding of Queensland's groundwater systems is ensuring the proper management and long term sustainability of vital sectors like agriculture and the onshore gas industry.

CSG Produced Water

Coal seam gas (CSG) production requires the extraction of significant quantities of groundwater in order to lower the pressure in the coal seam sufficiently to allow the gas to flow up the gas well to the surface.

Groundwater Systems

Understanding the groundwater systems in the coal seam gas (CSG) producing areas of Queensland is important to ensure that existing groundwater resources are not depleted.
