As the onshore gas industry develops throughout Queensland, it is important that independent scientific research continues in relation to understanding and monitoring the industry's impacts and interaction with groundwater, floodplains, salt management and the community.

Frequently Asked (Science) Questions about the onshore gas industry in Queensland

In 2015, the GasFields Commission completed a review of science communication resources relating to the onshore gas industry in Queensland. Benefit from these key information resources summarised and highlighted in several FAQs.

Air Quality Monitoring

Air quality monitoring stations are set up across Queensland, collecting real time air quality data that is live streamed online.

Groundwater Research in Queensland

Improving our knowledge and understanding of Queensland's groundwater systems can help to ensure the proper management and long term sustainability of vital sectors like agriculture and the onshore gas industry.

CSG Water Research in Queensland

Under Queensland's Waste Reduction and Recycling Act 2011, CSG proponents are required to identify beneficial uses for this produced water including treating the water for other uses such as irrigation, town water supplies, environmental flows and aquifer recharging.
