NT baseline methane and groundwater studies complete

September 23rd, 2019

GISERA has completed important baseline methane and groundwater studies in the Northern Territory.

GISERA has completed detailed studies in the Northern Territory’s Beetaloo Sub-basin providing baseline data on background methane levels and groundwater characteristics.

These studies address community concerns about fugitive methane emissions and potential groundwater impacts by providing detailed information about methane and groundwater before development occurs.

This important science helps inform appropriate policy and resource management decisions by the Northern Territory Government in relation to proposed shale gas exploration activities.
