AGL Fugitive Methane Emissions Monitoring Program – Technical Report

The Camden Gas Project, operated by AGL Upstream Investments Pty Limited (AGL), is a coal seam gas (CSG) project located to the south of Camden, NSW. The project currently comprises the Rosalind Park Gas Plant (RPGP), 144 coal seam gas wells, and interconnecting gas gathering lines.

AGL understands that the community is concerned about the potential impacts of the Camden Gas Project, including in relation to fugitive emissions and air quality. Accordingly, AGL has undertaken monitoring of fugitive methane concentrations in the vicinity of the existing Camden Gas Project and at selected local background monitoring locations that are geographically removed from the Camden Gas Project.

OBJECTIVES

The objective of the monitoring program is to determine if fugitive methane emissions from AGL CSG operations are influencing methane concentrations at locations within the Camden Gas Project at present. The monitoring program has been designed to measure methane concentrations at 20 sites within the Camden Gas Project, and five background locations, selected by AGL in conjunction with Pacific Environment and the community.

These 25 locations collectively make up the study area.

This study is intended to represent an indicative screening analysis of the current conditions in the vicinity of the Camden Gas Project in comparison with background monitoring locations that are geographically removed from the Camden Gas Project.

There are no specific health criteria for methane commonly used in NSW or internationally that are relevant to concentrations that might be expected locally associated with fugitive emissions of coal seam gas into the atmosphere.
