  • Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining (University of Queensland)
    The CCSG Socio-Economic Indicators project employs a suite of metrics developed to measure change in communities undergoing relatively rapid change, specifically - population, unemployment, income, housing costs, and crime rates. These metrics were originally selected to assess cumulative social and...
  • Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining (University of Queensland)
    Identifying mechanisms to understand, measure and respond to cumulative socio-economic impacts of resource development represents a priority area for the Social Performance stream in the Centre for Coal Seam Gas. These cumulative impacts are the successive, incremental and combined effects...
  • School of Journalism and Communication (University of Queensland)
    Media and strategic communication have played a primary role in anchoring CSG in the public agenda. The School of Journalism & Communication (UQ) undertook a scoping study in early 2013 to investigate the impacts of stakeholder-driven strategic communication on public...
  • Centre for Coal Seam Gas (University of Queensland)
    Concerns have been raised regarding the level of methane emissions that may occur in CSG development areas. This study’s hypothesis is that the methane emissions that can be measured in the air represent a complex combination of various sources including...
  • UQ Business School (University of Queensland)
    This project aimed to develop a context-sensitive understanding of the key drivers of stakeholders' trust in the coal seam gas (CSG) companies and broader CSG industry operating in the Western Downs and Surat Basin. It provided a rigorous, independent and...

    Bureau of Economic Geology (University of Texas at Austin)
    Hydraulic fracturing (fraccing) is a technique used to enhance gas flow from CSG wells in areas where the coal seams have low permeability. It involves injecting a mix of water and sand (typically 99%) and 1%industrial chemicals into the coal...
  • Centre for Water in the Minerals Industry (University of Queensland)
    CSG companies and the Queensland Government collect data about the volumes of various types of groundwater use. This data helps estimate groundwater extraction volumes used in groundwater models which inform decisions regarding the management of the industry and plan water...

    Coal seam gas development can have economic impacts across multiple scales ranging from state and regional to town and local business levels. Currently there is poor understanding of the key capabilities needed for SMEs to survive and benefit from a...
  • School of Earth Sciences (University of Queensland)
    The amount of coal seam gas that can be produced from a coal bed is dependent on the thickness of the coal, gas content, permeability and the depth of the coal seam. Determining permeability of coal seams is an important...
