Development of unconventional gas reserves in Australia is likely to follow the US model with a supply glut pushing gas prices back down towards the end of the decade, according to Santos managing director David Knox.

Save Our Water Catchment Areas (SOWCA) is a multi-group supported campaign to halt harm being done to the water catchment areas of NSW by coal seam gas (CSG) extraction, coal mining and any other damaging and hazardous mining and mining related activity, including exploration.
