UQ centre for CSG attracts $3.25m in funding for research

THE University of Queensland's Centre for Coal Seam Gas has attracted $3.25 million in funding to further its research capabilities.

The Centre for Coal Seam Gas' latest industry partner, Australia Pacific LNG, has committed the funding to the centre's research program, which focuses on the areas of water, geosciences, petroleum engineering and social performance.

Centre for Coal Seam Gas director Professor Andrew Garnett said on Friday Australia Pacific LNG was the fourth industry member to support the work of the centre, joining QGC, Arrow Energy and Santos.

"We now have a commitment from the four large coal seam gas operators in Queensland which will allow the centre greater scope for researching industry-wide topics," he said.

"Our research will enable the Australian gas sector to better meet the needs of the environment, community, government and industry."

Australia Pacific LNG chief executive Page Maxson said the funding would also contribute to the centre's education program, helping to provide skilled graduates to the onshore gas industry.

"We are very pleased to be supporting the centre, to continue to improve the knowledge of industry practices, and improve social and environmental management and technological innovation," he said.
