Water and CSG
The Great Artesian Basin is one of the leading underground water reservoirs in the world.
The area of the Great Arterian Basin (GAB) is equivalent to approximately 22 per cent of Australia’s land mass, spanning Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and the Northern Territory.
In CSG production, water is only extracted from the coal seams, not commonly used aquifers.
The diagram shows where the coal seams are typically positioned relative to the commonly used aquifers.
