Implementation of coal resource development pathway


The coal resource development pathway (CRDP) for the Gloucester subregion includes extensions to two existing coal mines – Stratford Mining Complex and Duralie Coal Pty Ltd – and one new mine – the Rocky Hill Coal Project. AGL’s proposed CSG development in the Gloucester Gas Project, stage 1 gas field development area is also included.

For numerical modelling purposes the CRDP was finalised in October 2015, and while AGL withdrew from its proposed Gloucester Gas Project in December 2015, as described in the companion submethodology M04 (as listed in Table 1) for developing a coal resource development pathway (Lewis, 2014), the CRDP was not revisited.

The coal resource development pathway (CRDP) is defined in companion product 2.3 for the Gloucester subregion (Dawes et al., 2018). This section details the numerical implementation of the coal mines and coal seam gas (CSG) extraction in the analytic element model. There are no coal resource developments that extract water directly from the alluvium.
