BOOBOOK works with the coal seam gas, mining and construction industries to deliver certainty regarding environmental constraints and opportunities. Our experience includes:
Our ecologists have undertaken ecological impact assessments of proposed gas wells, water storage facilities, laydown yards, roads, pipelines, access tracks, communication towers and gas plants for the coal seam gas industry, including major companies such as Origin, Santos, Senex and Arrow. We have been engaged directly by these companies as well as their contractors like CPB Contractors, Murphy Pipe and Civil, Downer, Decmil, RBY and FK Gardner.
A few examples of the Coal Seam Gas infrastructure assessment projects BOOBOOK have undertaken include:
The types of activities we’ve been responsible for include:
Our Fauna Spotters have worked on over 500 infrastructure sites associated with Australia Pacific LNG, GLNG, Senex and Arrow Energy’s coal seam gas fields in Queensland’s Surat Basin. Significant projects have included the
BOOBOOK works with land owners and managers to provide:
Boobook has documented the flora and fauna values of the vegetation remnants found within all state-controlled roads in southwest Queensland.
We have undertaken ecological surveys along every main road in southwest Queensland to asses the conservation values or roadside vegetation potentially affected by roadworks. During this process we collected detailed information concerning vegetation types, rare flora populations, threatened fauna habitats and weed infestations.
The road networks along which BOOBOOK have conducted surveys include:
Other projects completed include:
Boobook has provided environmental awareness training for Council staff using the results of the field surveys
BOOBOOK’s intimate knowledge of southern inland Queensland has been applied to many shire council projects including:
BOOBOOK has worked with natural resource groups including the Queensland Murray Darling Committee, South West Natural Resource Management and Landcare groups. We have helped these groups and landholders with:
BOOBOOK has undertaken audits of the biodiversity values of camping and water reserves, stock routes and shire roads within parts of the Maranoa Regional Council, formerly encompassing the Booringa and Warroo Shires. These audits have identified ecosystems, wetlands, pests and fauna/flora values as well as providing a snapshot of current condition. Often the vegetation within stock routes, reserves and roads represents some of the last intact vegetation and wildlife habitats within heavily cleared parts of these landscapes. These audits contribute information to ensure the environmental values of these reserves and stock routes are identified and appropriately managed.
BOOBOOK has been privileged to undertake work with Indigenous groups such as the Kooma Traditional Owners Inc and Bidjara Traditional Owners.
Within landscapes that contain rich natural and cultural heritage values we have undertaken:
We have provided project support to other ecological consulting companies including working on the Surat Basin Rail Corridor alignment options, threatened species searches and vegetation assessments.
