Build your understanding and confidence in the technical and commercial aspects of CSG from an Australian perspective. Investigate the drivers behind the development of successful CSG projects and demystify the environmental issues that constrain the industry. Key Learning Outcomes Gain a working knowledge of the industry structure and key developments Examine fundamentals of coal geology, and learn what drives the variance in gas content and composition from project to project Understand how to evaluate a CSG project based on exploration data and the tricks for young players Discover how the fundamental reservoir factors drive the commercial decisions Comprehend the differences in approach to gas management and development in mining and CSG Analyse gas volumetrics and calculate in-place gas volumes Demystify environmental red button issues such as fraccing and water management Learn how to convert resources to reserves and how to manage independent certifiers Learn the requirements for a successful CSG pilot project and its role in project development About the Course This course is designed to assist individuals throughout the financial, coal and petroleum industries to better understand CSG principles and fundamentals. You will examine the entire CSG project spectrum, which is intended to provide an introduction to those who are new to the CSG industry yet show relevant case histories for those currently working on ongoing CSG projects. The course will identify the unique characteristics of the Australasian CSG scene, with relevant comparison to the historical development of the industry in North America, and other current global developments. CSG projects are highly variable in fundamental reservoir properties, perhaps more so than conventional oil and gas.
