The Queensland Department of Environment and Science (DES) requires a UWIR to be developed for each petroleum tenure where production testing has occurred or where production has commenced. DES approves the UWIR and then Arrow must comply with the groundwater monitoring obligations within the relevant UWIR.
The Queensland Office of Groundwater Impact Assessment (OGIA) is responsible for the Surat Cumulative Management Area underground water impact report (Surat CMA), which assigns tenure holders with responsibility for groundwater monitoring and 'make good' – that is, making good any CSG-related impairment on landholders’ water bores.
The objective of this research is to further quantify the connectivity between the Condamine Alluvium and the Walloon Coal measures.
Bowen and exploration UWIRs
In accordance with the Water Act 2000, Arrow Energy has prepared a UWIR for:
- the Bowen Basin petroleum leases (PL) 191, 196, 223, 224 and Authorities to Prospect (ATP) 1103, 1031 and 742 around Glenden, Moranbah, Dysart, Middlemount and Blackwater in central Queensland.
- relinquished ATP 831 near Baralaba in central Queensland.
The Queensland Department of Environment and Science has approved Arrow's Bowen UWIR and ATP 831 final UWIR.
