AGL Energy has recommenced the transportation of flowback water from its Waukivory coalbed methane (CBM) site, part of the Gloucester Gas Project in New South Wales, Australia.
Approximately 27 000 litres of flowback water will be removed from the site and this is projected to take about three months.
Toxfree Solutions will transport and treat the flowback water at Toxfree’s Narangba plant in Brisbane’s north. It will be treated in accordance with the standards set by the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection and Toxfree’s trade waste agreement.
AGL has stated it holds the required government and regulatory approvals for this work to take place.
The company is currently still discussing with other waste disposal service providers options to treat the flowback water and dispose of treated water in New South Wales.
