Western Australian Frac Regulations

Graham Marshall - Friday, February 14, 2014

Western Australia is thought to contain around 20 per cent of the World's recoverable shale gas reserves.

So the process of Hydraulic Fracturing (so called "frac" or "fracking") of shale to release the gas is likely to become a widespread practice in coming years.

In response, the WA Department of Mines and Petroleum (WA DMP) has released its new draft Regulations for Hydraulic Fracture Stimulation to address water monitoring and gas well management.

The draft Regulations are open for public comment through to the end of May 2014.

Overall, more than 780 wells have already been fracked in WA since the first frac-job on Barrow Island in 1958.

It is thought that commercial exploitation of shale gas in WA is 5-10 years away.
