Lock the Gate challenges gas company claims CSG has nothing to do with Condamine River spa bath in new video

Published: October 12, 2012

Lock the Gate Alliance president, Drew Hutton, has released a video on YouTube showing that the Condamine River, near Chinchilla on the Darling Downs, is still bubbling like a spa bath as methane continues to pour out into the atmosphere.

Coal seam gas company, Origin, recently released a so-called scientific report with no peer review and no clear description of its methodology claiming the bubbling is “natural”.

Mr Hutton refutes that claim and points to a growing list of incidents on the Western Darling Downs where methane is finding its way to the surface in ways no one has seen before.
