The project

Arrow Energy is an integrated coal seam gas company with over 500 coal seam gas producing wells in Queensland. The project aims to establish the drilling sites before transporting the gas through the planned Surat Gladstone and Central Queensland Gas Pipelines to a Liquefied Natural Gas Plant in Gladstone, which will have an expected capacity of eight million tonnes a year. There, the coal seam gas will be cooled and converted to liquid for international shipping (Arrow Energy Website).

Native Title History

The Jangga People lodged an application for the recognition of native title rights and interests in 1998 over 20,350 square kilometres in central Queensland (Federal Court file no: QUD6230/98; Tribunal file no: QC98/10). The claim has been registered and is currently in mediation (National Native Title Tribunal, Claimant application summary - Jangga People).
