The main chemical component of coal seam gas (CSG) is methane. Methane is also a powerful greenhouse gas. As a chemical, methane is odourless, colourless, and invisible to the naked eye.
These characteristics mean that methane released during industry gasfield operations can be readily overlooked, ignored, or hidden. This report describes video recording methane emissions in the Queensland CSG fields using a FLIR GF-‐320 infrared video camera.
