Mapping future transport for improved planning and operation in the Northern Territory
Construction phases of onshore gas projects can impact regional road networks through increases in the type and number of vehicles along many roads.
New Alliance Agreement for ongoing research on impacts of gas
A new Alliance Agreement between CSIRO, Santos, Origin, APLNG and QGC continues to place value on research into the socio-economic and environmental impacts of onshore gas developments across Australia
Tiny new species discovered as scientists’ outback fishing trip bags exotic catch
Scientists uncover a variety of tiny aquatic animals, known as stygofauna, within aquifers in the Northern Territory.
Safeguarding future groundwater use in South Australia
This project will create a modelling tool to predict how aquifers in the south east of South Australia could be used in the future given the demands of a range of industries.
Putting land management knowledge into practice in the Northern Territory
Using modern data visualization techniques, this project will create a ‘virtual landscape’ of the Beetaloo Sub-basin which will assist landholders, regulators and industry to evaluate the design and placement of gas infrastructure in the region.
Perspectives on risk to local markets and industries
This fact sheet describes research project aims and objectives designed to assist community understanding of any potential impacts of onshore gas development on the image and place-of-origin branding of agricultural markets in south east South Australia.
Optimising wastewater management for onshore gas in the NT
This fact sheet describes research project activities aimed at developing a water management framework that identifies sustainable options for managing onshore gas wastewater in the Northern Territory, should gas resource development proposals proceed.
Biodiversity impacts from roads and pipelines in the Beetaloo Sub-basin
This fact sheet describes research project activities designed to investigate ways in which roads, pipelines and other transport infrastructure may impact biodiversity in the Beetaloo Sub-basin during the proposed development of an onshore gas industry.
Offsets for greenhouse gas emissions of onshore gas in the Northern Territory
This fact sheet describes research project activities designed to explore feasible options to offset lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) associated with proposed production and consumption of onshore gas extracted from the Beetaloo Sub-basin.
The role of gas in South Australia
This project will clarify the role of natural gas in meeting the state’s renewable energy, security, emissions and energy pricing goals.
Assessing the biodiversity of the Canning Basin in WA
This project will identify the plants and animals that inhabit the Canning Basin, with a particular focus on identifying species that have important conservation value or cultural significance.
Microbial degradation of chemicals and fluids in aquifers
This fact sheet describes research activities to establish baselines for microbial communities in the Tertiary Limestone Aquifer in south east South Australia. In addition, researchers will study the potential for microbial degradation of chemicals used by the onshore gas industry.
$13.7 million Federal funding boost for CSIRO’s GISERA
The CSIRO’s Gas Industry Social and Environmental Research Alliance welcomed a Federal Government decision to commit $13.7 million for new research into the impacts of onshore gas developments across Australia.
Mitigating fugitive gas emissions from well casings
This project will review current industry practice and conduct experimental investigations to evaluate techniques and assess new materials designed to minimise fugitive methane emissions leaking from microfractures and gaps in gas well cement casing.
Community wellbeing and local attitudes to conventional gas development in south east South Australia
This fact sheet summarises key points of research into community wellbeing and local attitudes and perceptions of conventional gas development in the southern Limestone Coast or lower south east region of South Australia.
CSIRO’s Gas Industry Social and Environmental Research Alliance refutes misleading report
CSIRO’s Gas Industry Social and Environmental Research Alliance (GISERA) refutes the claims made in the document ‘CSIR...who?’ published by The Australia Institute in July 2020.
Air, water and soil impacts of hydraulic fracturing in Queensland
In a first of its kind in Australia, CSIRO has completed a comprehensive study into impacts of hydraulic fracturing, a process that is sometimes used to extract coal seam gas trapped within coal deposits.
