Surveying emissions from coal seam gas water holding ponds in Queensland

April 5th, 2024

CSIRO scientists will survey coal seam gas (CSG) water holding ponds in Queensland's Surat Basin to evaluate their methane emissions potential.

Conducted through CSIRO’s Gas Industry Social and Environmental Research Alliance (GISERA) this research project
will provide data on methane emissions from CSG water holding ponds.

This will fill critical knowledge gaps, and improve the community’s understanding of the potential greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from CSG production in Queensland.

CSIRO scientists will select a range of representative holding ponds (up to 20) for the direct measurement of methane emissions.
