Craig’s presentation will give valuable background to the nature of unconventional gas production and outline the relative magnitude of the Australian unconventional gas resource. The contribution of coal seam gas to Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) projects and the development of shale projects in Australia are two examples of how unconventional resources can change the energy landscape.
An accepted theme in the gas field development and community issues is that of water and salt management. There is growing opinion that gas companies must view water, not as a cost, but as a strategic component of their value chain. The effective economic management, communication and implementation of community acceptable water solutions have a direct impact on the success of gas developments. The opportunity of correctly managing the implementation of effective water solutions is to gain community acceptance of the industry.
The Queensland Gas Conference and Exhibition is dedicated to the latest developments and issues surrounding Coal Seam Gas (CSG) and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) in Queensland. The conference will take place at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from 25–26 November 2014.
