Baseline monitoring of methane emissions in the Beetaloo Sub-basin

Understanding natural methane levels over time

The aim of this project is to monitor and measure background methane levels and rate of change in methane levels during the dry, wet, and fire seasons using mobile survey technology.

The research will provide a better understanding of natural methane levels over the various seasons and result in a baseline for accurately quantifying any future onshore gas impacts.
