Queensland's gas reserves

Demand for natural gas in Queensland is met from large reserves of coal seam gas (CSG) and relatively small conventional gas reserves, but there are significant differences in the way the gas is extracted and the location of the reserves in Queensland.

The majority of Queensland's conventional gas is drawn from fields covering the Cooper and Eromanga basins in the south and south-west of Queensland, with most production being from Ballera and Roma.

Small quantities of conventional gas continue to be extracted from the Surat Basin, Queensland's initial source of natural gas. CSG is drawn from the Bowen and Surat basins, with exploration activity also occurring in the Galilee Basin.
