Characteristics of methane seeps

April 14th, 2017

The Surat Basin is one of Australia’s largest coal seam gas regions. Over the coming years, production of gas will increase as Lique ed Natural Gas (LNG) facilities come online. This study will develop a better understanding and characterise methane sources across the region. It is important to distinguish between methane sources that occur naturally and those that are referred to as anthropogenic, or occur after some kind of human involvement.

This project will detect and measure methane seeping from underground in the Surat Basin, and identify sources of methane to provide a baseline of methane emissions on a regional scale.
