Coal Seam Gas - the impact on Australia's economy - Thursday 24 November 2011

The CSG boom has become a controversial part of the Queensland industry and economy.

Queensland’s CSG industry has seen remarkable growth in the last few years and with our economy poised to benefit from massive investments in this new industry, the Government and recent Federal Budget is relying on the resources industry to bring Australia back to surplus by 2013.

Over 200 CEO's and Senior Executives joined in the discussion, as four industry leaders each gave their perspectives and vision on this multi-billion dollar industry, on topics such as; the background and how the process works; how CSG, water and environmental issues are managed; what CSG brings to the community; the positive effects for local business; CSG’s part in the recovering the nation; “the future as we see it” for the State’s mega CSG projects.
