6100 gas wells approved for Santos in Gladstone project

Wednesday 4th of January 2017 10:33:37 AM



Further development to the coal seam gas fields of the Gladstone Natural Gas Project by Santos has been allowed by the federal Department of Environment and Energy.

These include up to 6100 additional CSG wells and associated infrastructure.

A change in the conditions where Santos must not release CSG produced water into surface water was a major factor in the approval.

However this will not apply if the Minister approves the release or discharge of the water or the Minister has determined that the proposed release or discharge of CSG produced water does not require approval under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act.
