Last Thursday water and gas exploded from a bore on a Western Downs property which Arrow Energy holds exploration rights.
Speaking to the ABC, Mines Minister Andrew Cripps, said CSG compliance officers were assessing the situation.
“On inspection, the bore [casing] was shaking and there was an audible sound of gas escaping from the bore,” he said.
“The bore is not emitting gas levels that are unsafe, so there’s no potential for ignition at this point in time.”
“I understand the landholder is satisfied that all parties are following the procedures set down.”
In a statement, the company said it had been contacted by the Department of Natural Resources and Mines and was aware of the investigation.
“Arrow has no active operations in the area which might account for the described bore activity,” the statement said.
Mr Cripps said it was too early to determine if CSG activities on neighbouring properties are a contributing factor to the bore’s destabilisation.
“I will make sure, as the Government will, that once the investigation to determine the cause is finalised, the appropriate action is taken,” he said.
