The coal seam gas debate – Parliament of Australia

In conventional gas fields, the gas exists in permeable sandstone reservoirs. 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.

The coal bed methane market in Australia, or coal seam gas (CSG) as it is referred to there, is becoming a burgeoning market and a resource for supplying the Australian LNG capacity and the world LNG market. The Asian market is the closest and largest market that is importing LNG from Australia, and demand for CSG is also growing in Australia itself.

Stop CSG Illawarra – The Campaign To Stop Coal Seam Gas

Coal seam gas production requires extraction of a large amount of water to allow the gas to flow to the surface. Additionally, the water is too salty for agricultural use. Therefore, CSG is a threat to water catchments. This problem is much bigger in the developed world where the production of coal seam water is much advanced.

Coal Seam Gas (CSG) is a natural methane gas found in coal seams made by coal forming under the earth for millions of years. Countries such as the United States and China have utilised it for energy needs. Methane lines the inside of the coal cracks, pores and micro-pores and is found in the open fractures (cleats) and seams. ...

Coal Seam Gas | IDE Technologies

The Coal Seam Gas (CSG) process is a natural gas extraction process from coal seams buried in the ground. In order to release the gas, the coal seams are de-pressurized by releasing large volumes of water. The water that is a by-product of the CSG production process often has difficult water chemistry, such as high silica and alkalinity.

CHAPTER 6.—COAL SEAM DEGASIFICATION

Since coal seams and gas in coal are formed together, it is a misnomer to call a coal seam nongassy. All coal seams are gassy by definition, but they vary in their degree of gassiness, i.e., gas content per ton of coal. The depth of a coal seam and its rank are good indicators of its

Coal Seam Gas | Geoscience Australia

Coal Seam Gas (CSG) is a naturally occurring methane gas found in most coal seams and is similar to conventional natural gas. In Australia the commercial production of CSG commenced in 1996 in the Bowen Basin, Queensland. Since then production has increased rapidly, particularly during the first decade of the 21st century.
