Coal Seam Gas Projects


Environmental assessments have been undertaken for the Coal Seam Gas (CSG) industry since the inception of our business. We have intimate knowledge of the biodiversity values and management issues associated with CSG fields in the Surat Basin.

Services include:

  • ecological assessments of proposed sites for CSG infrastructure including gas wells, flow lines, camps, water storage ponds, compressor stations, communication towers, borrow pits and access roads
  • flora surveys
  • fauna surveys
  • fauna spotting services
  • weed surveys
  • assistance with preparation of referrals under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act)
  • preparation of ecological educational material for staff and contractors
  • provision of environmental training for staff and contractors
  • document and policy reviews
  • development of fire management plans


Many of the CSG fields are located in biologically rich and environmentally sensitive areas. One of Boobook's strengths lies in the identification of key ecological values and working with clients to develop strategies to ensure these values are maintained while maximising production activities.
