AgForce CSG to hold work­shops

Chinchilla News - - NEWS | WELCOME -

WESTERN Downs and Mara­noa land­hold­ers want­ing to learn more about the ex­pan­sion of the CSG in­dus­try are en­cour­aged to at­tend free work­shops in Chin­chilla and Roma next week.

AgForce CSG project leader Daniel Phipps said land­hold­ers at­tend­ing the Ad­vanced CSG Ne­go­ti­a­tion Sup­port work­shops would be up­dated on the Senex En­ergy ex­pan­sion pro­posal, how a new Land Ac­cess Om­buds­man will work, and the lat­est wa­ter im­pact as­sess­ments.

“Senex En­ergy re­cently ap­plied to the Queensland Gov­ern­ment to amend their En­vi­ron­men­tal Author­ity to ex­pand their Western Su­rat Gas Project, in­clud­ing staged drilling of up to 425 wells, and up to three gas field com­pres­sion and as­so­ci­ated fa­cil­i­ties,” he said.

“This ap­pli­ca­tion is an im­por­tant re­minder that the CSG in­dus­try will con­tinue to ex­pand across the Su­rat Basin re­gion, with around 6000 pro­duc­tion wells drilled so far and up to 20,000 re­quired across the life­span of the in­dus­try.

“It’s crit­i­cal land­hold­ers re­main aware of in­creas­ing in­dus­try activities, changes to ground­wa­ter pre­dic­tions and what changes to leg­is­la­tion and gov­ern­ment poli­cies mean for them.”

“It’s all about en­sur­ing land­hold­ers un­der­stand their rights and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties so they can pro­tect their prop­er­ties, their busi­nesses and their liveli­hoods.”

The work­shops run from 9am to 1pm with the Roma work­shop be­ing held on Tues­day, Au­gust 29 and the Chin­chilla work­shop be­ing held on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 30. While the work­shops are free, regis­tra­tions are es­sen­tial.
