The Surat Basin is a geological basin in eastern Australia. There is some slight natural gas potential. Jurassic coal seams have been worked and explored in the Queensland portions of the basin. Mines. The basin has a number of mines such as Wilkie Creek Mine where Peabody Energy Australia mines and then exports coal. Coal seam methane. The basin has a number of coal seam methane fields
The resources sector is expected to create more than 2000 jobs in the Surat Basin over the next two years, with coal seam gas the main contributor. December 7, 2015 828 comments QGC announces
The Surat Basin coal-seam gas project is a large-scale operation that has kept Murphy Pipe and Civil (MPC) pipe crews busy for almost three years. The following is an interview with the construction Director Tony O`Sullivan, who gives us some insights into what it takes to construct a pipe network of this size. CSG-LNG pipeline quick facts
The Surat Basin has traditionally been a coal region, but several billion dollars worth of projects are now earmarked in resources ranging from coal seam gas (CSG) and liquid natural gas (LNG), to wind farming and solar generation. Then there's the billion-dollar expansion of the Port of Gladstone and the new rail link connecting the port and the basin.
COAL SEAM GAS. Coal seam gas is predominantly rich in the Surat and Bowen Basin, within central and northern QLD, as well as the ClarenceMoreton Basin in SE QLD and NE NSW. The Surat basin is a part of the Great Artesian Basin and the Bowen Basin underlies parts of the Great Artesian Basin. Both are important sources of fresh water
Coalbed methane (CBM or coal-bed methane), coalbed gas, coal seam gas (CSG), or coal-mine methane (CMM) is a form of natural gas extracted from coal beds. In recent decades it has become an important source of energy in United States, Canada, Australia, and other countries. The term refers to methane adsorbed into the solid matrix of the coal.

Surat gas project is located 160km west of Brisbane in the Surat Basin, Queensland, Australia. The A$10bn ($7.1bn) project is expected to produce 5,000 petajoules (PJ) of coal seam gas (CSG) for LNG export as well as domestic gas sales over its estimated project life of 35 years.
CIMIC Group company CPB Contractors has won a $90 million contract with Australia Pacific Liquefied Natural Gas (APLNG) to deliver over 300 coal seam gas wells in the Surat Basin, Queensland.
The coal seams are generally filled with water and it is the pressure of the water that keeps the gas as a thin film on the surface of the coal. The technical term for this is 'adsorption'. Natural gas in coal seams in Australia is not a new discovery. It was first identified when coal mining began in

A Risk to Groundwater from Coal Seam Gas Extraction in the Surat Basin Keywords: coal seam gas; Surat Basin; agriculture Abstract The potential exists for land use conflict to arise between coal seam gas mining and traditional agriculture in the Surat Basin in Southern Queensland. Farming and grazing enterprises, businesses and towns in the region are largely dependent on the underground
Coal seam gas extraction can reduce groundwater pressure and, subject to aquifer connectivity, has potential consequences for fresh water aquifers both in terms of quantity and quality. Connectivity and leakage between aquifers can also have implications for surface water resources. Similar concerns also apply to large coal mines, which may also disrupt surface flow through
The coal-bearing formations have variable potential for coal seam gas (CSG) production. Since 2012, the area of planned CSG development has contracted significantly as resource operators improve their understanding of the resource. Introduction to the Surat CMA. The video below provides an introductory overview of the Surat CMA.
CSG, however, is found in coal seams, where underground water pressure keeps it contained. Pumping water out of the coal seam releases this pressure and allows gas to escape from the coal into a well. Well spacing: in conventional gas reservoirs, a single well can give a good flow rate, as the gas steadily migrates towards the well and then out.

areas, it is the reserves of coal seam gas (CSG) that represent the biggest source of both promise and conflict. With three newly-approved CSG ‘mega-projects’, another in development, mining exploration permits covering most of the region, and an export contract of unprecedented magnitude, this part of the Surat Basin is viewed as a critical
Coal seam gas (CSG) is natural gas mainly composed of methane, the odourless and colourless gas used in homes and businesses. Natural gas from coal seams is used in exactly the same way as other natural gas, for cooking, heating, electricity production and to make products such as fertilisers.
