Legacy coal bores, overlapping tenure and the use of drone methane detection technology
The development of the coal seam gas industry in Queensland has seen a significant rise in overlap of exploration and production tenure held by Coal Seam Gas (CSG) and coal companies. Legislation is in place to optimize the safe development of Queensland’s coal and CSG activities in overlapping areas, and provides a framework for CSG and coal companies to coordinate activities safely and exchange relevant information.
Coal bore data (surface and subsurface) can provide valuable information to CSG exploration and development planning in areas of overlapping tenure. Historically, this data has been difficult to obtain, however overlapping tenure legislation along with recent changes to report confidentiality timeframes will provide a pathway to data accessibility.
Legacy coal bores are historical bores located on tenure which has either ended and been relinquished or where the resource holder has changed. Leaking legacy coal bores present a significant reputational and social license risk for the gas industry including significant cost for remediation. Information on legacy coal bores is often difficult to access, particularly with respect to locational accuracy and rehabilitation status.
Legacy coal bores may have little or no surface expression, however drone technology can be used to determine the near surface location of legacy coal bores emitting methane. The subsurface conditions are assessed with non-invasive technology and surface rehabilitation status can be surveyed using the latest drone imagery.
This presentation will provide an overview of overlapping tenure in Queensland with particular focus on coal bore data availability and access, legacy coal bore locations and issues related to CSG development and the use of drone methane detection technology to help resolve these issues.
Tickets can be purchased below.
Please be advised of the early bird cut-off date.
Early bird pricing will remain available up until Wednesday 14th of April, 5:00 PM after which, standard pricing will come into effect.
