Who owns Arrow gas?

Who owns Arrow gas?

Does Australia export coal seam gas?

Coal seam gas is expected to remain as Australia’s most important unconventional gas resource in the near term (Figure 1 and Figure 2). CSG is already a major source for domestic gas and LNG exports in eastern Australia.

What is the difference between coal seam gas and natural gas?

Conventional natural gas and CSG are chemically similar. CSG is almost pure methane; conventional gas is around 90 per cent methane with ethane, propane, butane and other hydrocarbons making up the remainder. The difference between CSG/shale gas and conventional gas is the type of geological rock they are found in.

Is CSG renewable?

Coal seam gas is a non-renewable energy resource that is a by-product of coal. It is a ‘pure’ and ‘non-toxic’ gas and for this reason has attracted a lot of commercial interest. During the process of coal formation, biogenic and thermogenic methane gas forms.

Does Shell own Arrow energy?

Who we are. Arrow is an incorporated joint venture between Shell and PetroChina (50/50), with a proud history in Queensland operating gas and power assets.

Does Australia use fracking?

Despite this, many Australian states still allow fracking in 2021. This includes Queensland, New South Wales, Western Australia and the Northern Territory. On the other hand, state governments in Tasmania and Victoria have banned fracking.

How many CSG wells are in Australia?

Did you know: it is estimated there will be 40,000 coal seam gas wells in Australia.

Where is coal seam gas found in Australia?

Coal seam gas production in Australia Significant reserves of coal seam gas are known in the Bowen and Surat basins in Queensland. In New South Wales reserves have been proven in the Sydney, Gunnedah, Clarence-Moreton and Gloucester basins.

Is coal seam gas sustainable?

Coal Seam Gas (CSG) is not a ‘clean transition’ fuel because of the potential for substantial fugitive methane emissions associated with extraction and distribution. CSG may prove to be more damaging to the climate than coal.

Does AGL do fracking?

AGL uses hydraulic fracturing to increase gas production of coal seam gas (CSG) from its wells.

Who is the biggest natural gas producer in Australia?

Who owns Australia’s LNG?

China overtook Japan as the number one buyer of Australian LNG, importing 31.6 million tonnes of LNG from Australia, compared to 27.3 million tonnes bought by Japan.

What is the government doing about coal seam gas in Queensland?

As the coal seam gas industry grew in Queensland, so did landholder and community tension with industry and the government. Some of this concern was about the effectiveness of government departments in regulating this growing industry. In recognition of this, the government set a policy of promoting coexistence.

Are there any alternative reports on the coal seam gas industry?

The department has no alternative reports that provide this detail nor any regular assessments of the coal seam gas industry and the effectiveness of its regulatory activities. Instead, if requested, ad hoc intelligence assessments are produced for specific issues.

Why can’t Arrow locate any coal seam gas wells in Queensland?

The Queensland government created an environmental condition that prevents Arrow from locating any coal seam gas wells within a 10km radius of the Linc Energy site under the state approval covering one of its petroleum leases, known as PL493.

How is coal seam gas released from the coal seam?

To release coal seam gas, groundwater is pumped to the surface and separated. A lot of this water is very salty and cannot be used without being processed. The salt is removed from the groundwater by either reverse osmosis plants or through plastic-lined evaporation ponds, and both processes create waste brine or salt.
