Since GISERA’s launch in 2011, over 30 projects have commenced in Qld and most have been completed. Work has been centered around the Surat Basin.
Key controls or contributors to methane emissions from CSG water holding ponds
This CSIRO research project will provide data to contribute to our understanding of CSG water holding ponds as sources of methane emissions.
Methane emissions from CSG water holding ponds in Queensland
This project aims to provide a comprehensive survey of Queensland CSG holding ponds in the Surat Basin to fully evaluate their methane emissions potential.
QLD Sources of methane emissions from the Western Downs Region
This project will apply innovative sampling and analytical methods developed by CSIRO to determine sources of methane in air samples collected in the Western Downs Region of Queensland.
Analysis of dust near CSG sites to assess potential for respirable crystalline silica
This project will assess the potential hazard posed by respirable crystalline silica (RCS) by investigating the current composition of dust and the size distributions of the different constituents in the GISERA Health 2 project study area in the Surat Basin, Queensland.
Exposure assessment of identified chemicals used in CSG activities
This project further assesses the potential human health impacts of the identified chemicals within the GISERA Health 2 project study area.
Evaluating medium-term socio-economic impacts of onshore gas activity in Southern Queensland
Medium-term socio-economic impacts in Southern Queensland.
Review of cements, steels and microbial activity for Qld CSG wells
This project will collate details on materials used in well casings and cements from information contained within Well Completion Reports. It will also review information on microbial activity in related geological formations from published papers and CSIRO studies.
