The UQ Centre for Natural Gas provides an avenue for growing and sharing knowledge in the onshore gas research field. As part of carrying out research on natural gas development and its impact on social, environmental and economic changes, the Centre has developed a range of publicly available resources to aid sharing information.

An open source 3D intuitive water atlas for the Surat Basin has been developed by the UQ Centre for Natural Gas. This water atlas includes unified data on groundwater level and chemistry, hydrogeological layers and analysis tools. The water level and chemistry data have been sourced from the state government database as well as CSG company bore and well-monitoring programs.
The UQ Centre for Natural Gas has created a unique system of key indicators developed to measure change in communities undergoing rapid change such as natural gas development. The project employs a suite of metrics developed to measure change in communities undergoing relatively rapid change, including population, unemployment, income, housing costs, and crime rates.
The Centre's online 'boomtown' toolkit to monitor changes in communities undergoing rapid changes, identifying cause and effect and improving a community’s future prospects, is based on a specialist framework developed at UQ. The framework facilitated the toolkit fostering a common understanding of socio-economic cumulative impacts of development activities and identifying methods to address them. It provides an adaptive assessment and monitoring framework to help inform decision making among stakeholders and help attain socioeconomic benefits for the region.
