From HVPA mailbox:
Arrow Energy have discovered BTEX chemicals at a concentration of 15 parts per billion in monitoring wells on their Daandine field on the Darling Downs http://www.arrowenergy.com.au/icms_docs/102322_Arrow_Energy_advises_of_monitoring_results.pdf
These concentration are too low to cause serious concerns in the oil an gas industry so what is the point of this media release? They have reported a similar BTEX "discovery" before in their north Queensland gasfields (see review http://huntervalleyprotectionalliance.com/pdf/NTN-Fracking-Briefing-Paper-April-2011.pdf).
Since volatile BTEX toxics are occurring naturally in coal, benzene was first discovered in coal tar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benzene#Discovery), they are a bit of a sore point in the CSG industry propaganda. This suggests that the only purpose of this media release is to spin how well the current CSG self-regulation system works.


Folks,

There are unconfirmed reports this morning that Arrow Energy have discovered BTEX chemicals at a concentration of 15 parts per billion in monitoring wells on their Daandine field on the Darling Downs.

If this is correct, It is hardly a surprise!

Will the Queensland Government now shut them down as they did Cougar Energy at Kingaroy?

Expect the government to spin this and tell the public how wonderfully their monitoring systems are performing.

regards
