Coal seam gas (CSG) mining is a risky, invasive form of unconventional gas mining. There is extensive CSG production currently taking place in Queensland- from Central Queensland to the Western Darling Downs region.
The CSG industry has expanded rapidly in Queensland since 2010. The Queensland Government reported that there were 5127 CSG production wells in operation in mid-2016. An interactive map of Queensland's coal seam gas fields can be viewed here.
Voices from the Gaslands is a series of short videos featuring people living surrounded by coal seam gas fields in the Western Downs region of Queensland. These rural residents are at the front line of unconventional gas development in Australia and are already experiencing a range of devastating impacts on their health, well being and livelihoods.
