The Centre provides an avenue for growing and sharing knowledge in the onshore gas research field. As part of carrying out research on Coal Seam Gas development and its impact on social, environmental and economic changes, the Centre has developed a range of publicly available resources to aid sharing information.
In addition, the 3D water atlas includes the most recent geological model of the Surat Basin. It contains basic search functions which can find a single bore or identify bores completed in a particular formation. There are also quality control features which can be used to filter out bores which do not match a specified criteria.
The use of this tool kit across multiple sectors will foster a common understanding of socio-economic cumulative impacts of CSG and identify methods to address them. This tool kit provides an adaptive assessment and monitoring framework to help inform decision making among stakeholders and help attain socioeconomic benefits for the region.
These metrics were originally selected to assess cumulative social and economic impacts of CSG development in towns in the Western Downs regional council area, the heart of Queensland’s CSG development. These indicator metrics were developed - and employed - through extensive engagement with regional communities and other stakeholders.
The UQ Onshore Gas Research Directory was created to help researchers, decision-makers, resource companies and community members to make sense of this rapidly evolving research landscape. By providing up-to-date information about what research is being done and who is doing it, the research directory aims to facilitate better research outcomes and to foster greater awareness of the nature and scope of research that is being undertaken.
The Onshore Gas Research Directory is a catalogue of current and recent research investigating the development of natural gas from coal seams and other onshore unconventional reservoirs in Australia. It aims to cover all relevant disciplines, topics and research organisations.
