1.2.4 Catalogue of potential resource developments


Summary

All developments within the Clarence‑Moreton bioregion are currently at the pre‑environmental impact statement (EIS) stage. However, subject to regulatory approval, the West Casino Gas Project may move towards an EIS within the time frames considered by the bioregional assessment.

All developments within the Clarence‑Moreton bioregion are currently at the pre-environmental impact statement (EIS) stage. However, subject to regulatory approval, the West Casino Gas Project may be likely to move towards an EIS within the time frames considered by the bioregional assessment. In this section, we present the current coal exploration projects and potential coal seam gas resource developments.

Table 4 shows the current coal exploration projects within the Clarence‑Moreton bioregion.

Table 5 lists potential coal seam gas resource developments. All of these are currently at the pre‑EIS stage.

aThe record date is the most recent date for updated coal resource numbers.

bMaterials fall into one of the following four classes: thermal coal, coking coal, pulverised coal injection (PCI) and unspecified.

cThis is based on Joint Ore Reserves Committee (JORC) codes of measured, indicated and inferred coal resources.

dThe status of the project within an environmental impact statement (EIS): pre-EIS, EIS in preparation, EIS submitted, EIS closed, supplementary EIS and EIS approved.

aThe record date is the most recent date for updated coal seam gas resource numbers.

bThe Petroleum Resource Management System of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (PRMS-SPE) code 2P refers to estimated quantities of proved reserves plus probable reserves.

cThe status of the project within an environmental impact statement (EIS): pre-EIS, EIS in preparation, EIS submitted, EIS closed, supplementary EIS and EIS approved.

dIn September 2014, Metgasco has announced that it has reclassified its gas reserves as resources (Metgasco, 2014c).
