Coal Seam Gas Mining Debate

Coal Seam Gas Mining Debate

Coal seam gas (CSG) mining commenced in Australia in 1976 though did not develop into an industry until the mid 1990s. By 2011, there were approximately 40,000 CSG wells and the industry generated thousands of jobs.

Since then, CSG exploration and mining have been the subject of fierce debate in Australia, due largely to their demands on artesian water sources and generation of salt and chemical byproducts. Their long-term impact on the environment is also unknown. While Australia's resources industry is calling for an increase to CSG mining, many scientists, politicians, farmers and environmental groups are demanding it be contained or abandoned all together.
