Coal Seam Gas & Shale Gas Water Treatment

Coal Seam Gas (CSG) and Shale Gas reservoirs are relatively new gas sources which have revolutionised natural gas markets over the past two decades, increasing global supply and stabilising gas prices.

The CSG industry in Australia is growing exponentially, accounting for over 30 per cent of the country’s total gas produced in 2016.


Australia's eastern states all have world class reserves of CSG, however only Queensland is developing a sizeable production, due to pioneering efforts of local stakeholders and progressive government regulations.

New South Wales and Victoria have taken a more conservative approach, with NSW temporarily freezing CSG exploration in 2014, and Victoria maintaining a moratorium on onshore gas development since 2012.

Northern and Western Australia contain large shale gas reservoirs (such as the Beetaloo Sub-Basin), with the Northern Territory lifting it’s moratorium on onshore gas exploration in 2018.
