Australia's natural gas consumption is predicted to significantly increase as Australia transitions to a lower carbon economy through greater use of gas for electricity generation purposes, as well as rising energy demands associated with increased population and economic growth.


Researching social, economic and environmental impacts of the
natural gas industry.

CSIRO and Australian Pacific LNG Pty Ltd are founding members of the Gas Industry Social & Environmental Research Alliance (GISERA). An initial investment of more than $14 million over the next five years will fund research into the socio-economic and environmental impacts of the natural gas industry. This initial focus will be directed at Queensland's CSG-LNG industry but will have potential to expand to address impacts and opportunities associated with different gas industries and geographies. GISERA is unlike previous investments in CSG because of its regional and public good role and its desire to provide a whole of industry focus.
