Water extracted from coal seams as part of natural gas production can be safely managed and reused.
Depending on the quality of the water and how we will reuse it, produced water may already meet quality standards for the proposed reuse.
If it needs to be treated first, we use two main water treatment solutions:
Brine (salty water) is produced as a by-product from desalination. We carefully manage brine in accordance with legislation, for subsequent transfer to a licenced waste management facility as either brine or crystalised salt.
