Oil and gas

Oil and gas

Oil and gas are major contributors to Australia’s energy needs, and this sector is in a pivotal position to drive better environmental management and stewardship, leading the charge for a more sustainable future.

At Boobook Ecological Consulting, we have unsurpassed experience working with the oil and gas sector in the Surat, Bowen and Galilee Basins of Queensland. 

We work with our partners in this sector to help them meet regulatory requirements, be equipped to achieve their environmental and sustainability targets and feel inspired to maintain a culture of continual improvement.

We have also been involved with small-scale pilot projects through to full-scale gas field developments involving assessments for infrastructure such as wells, compressor stations, pipelines, roads, communication towers and camps.

Our experience

Our ecologists have undertaken ecological impact assessments of proposed gas wells, water storage facilities, laydown yards, roads, pipelines, access tracks, communication towers and gas plants for the coal seam gas industry, including for major companies such as Origin, Santos, Senex and Arrow. We have been engaged directly by these companies as well as their contractors like CPB Contractors, Murphy Pipe and Civil, Downer, Decmil, RBY and FK Gardner.
