We’ve been busy over the last six months collecting and analysing data, providing trusted information to communities about coal seam and shale gas extraction processes and answering questions about potential environmental risks.

Message from the director

Welcome to the Gas Industry Social and Environmental Research Alliance’s (GISERA) biannual e-newsletter, the purpose of which is to update you on research progress and highlight GISERA activities.

Firstly, I would like to thank Dr. Peter Stone, former GISERA Director, for his leadership in guiding GISERA through its formative years. With the solid foundation of public trust established and projects well underway, GISERA moves into a new phase of growth and delivery of robust research. As the new GISERA Director, I will build on GISERA’s achievements and oversee this dynamic period of development and successful project completion.

I would also like to extend a warm welcome to QGC as GISERA’s newest member.

We’ve been busy over the last six months collecting and analysing data, providing trusted information to communities about coal seam and shale gas extraction processes and answering questions about potential environmental risks. Along the way we’ve learnt that the type and amount of information varies depending on the experience of local communities and the stage of development. We’ve also provided briefings and research updates to COAG Ministers and those at the GasFields Community Leaders Council meeting.

If you are looking for any research results they can be found on the GISERA website. Also, if you have any feedback and suggestions for improving the newsletter please send them through. The contact details are at the bottom of this email.

I look forward to sharing more research updates with you over the next few years.

Cheers,
Damian Barrett, GISERA Director and CSIRO Research Director, Unconventional Gas.
