FESQ-SPE-DNRM Technology Day

10 Oct 2016

FESQ-SPE-DNRM held a Technology Day in Brisbane, with the intention of bringing together industry, government and university professionals and students to share knowledge and innovative technology in the gas industry sector.  CCSG Prof Jim Underschultz presented research on "Fault seal analysis and applications to understanding risk of CSG development impacting adjacent aquifers". There were also 9 CCSG PhD students showcasing their research covering a variety of topics on coal seam gas research during the poster session. In addition Geophysicist Jeff Copley presented 2 posters on seismic interpretation.
