EPA investigating release of 500l of produced water by Santos in Narrabri Gas Field

Media release: 28 March 2014 - The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) is investigating a release of about 500 litres of produced water which entered a diversion drain at the Santos Narrabri Gas Field on Tuesday March 25.

The produced water entered the diversion drain during transfer from an assessment well to a holding pond.

Immediately following the release, the diversion drain was blocked to prevent the produced water leaving the site.

The produced water was captured and returned to the pond.

The EPA is undertaking further investigations.

The Government has designated the EPA the lead regulator of environmental and health issues associated with coal seam gas, and established the Office of Coal Seam Gas in NSW Trade and Investment to regulate other important issues, including petroleum titles, rehabilitation, safety and engineering standards.

Another toxic coal seam gas spill for Santos

MEDIA RELEASE - 28 March 2014

The Greens NSW spokesperson on mining Jeremy Buckingham expressed his concern that the EPA has announced an investigation into yet another spill by Santos, this time of 500 litres of toxic coal seam gas water at its Narrabri coal seam gas operations. He called for their operations to be frozen by the Minister.

“Santos promised that their ‘new’ management would ensure that the pollution incidents stopped. This latest spill of toxic coal seam gas water is proof that this industry is unsafe no matter who runs it,” said Greens MP Jeremy Buckingham.

“Coal seam gas is an inherently risky industry. We’ve had multiple spills and contamination incidents with only a dozen pilot wells. The risk will be multiplied with 850 gas wells planned for their Narrabri operations.

“Produced water contains high levels of salt, as well as dangerous heavy metals such as arsenic, lead and uranium.”
