Fact Sheet

Coal Seam Gas (CSG) is a natural gas that is produced from the fractures or ‘cleats’ of underground coal seams.Water is pumped from the coal seams which lowers the pressure and allows the gas to flow into the well.CSG is essentially the simplest form of hydrocarbon, methane.

CSG is used in the same way as natural gas from conventional sources (eg ; underground sandstone reservoirs) for cooking, heating, industrial applications and electricity generation.  It also used as a feedstock for the manufacture of fertilisers.
