WA Onshore Gas - Hydraulic Fracturing, fracking chemicals and Unconventional Gas in Western Australia
Exploring for clean, reliable, efficient household and industry energy

WA Onshore Gas

Western Australia’s onshore gas resources have the potential to transform the State’s energy industry.

By exploring prospects for tight gas and shale gas resources the onshore gas industry is expanding the sources of natural gas WA's households and businesses have been using for four decades.

If successful these exploration programs will offer new gas resources to drive the State’s economic growth for the next generation.

Community Workshops

Government, industry and CSIRO are jointly coordinating community workshops on the potential development of Western Australia’s onshore shale and tight gas industries. learn more

Following the first of these in October CSIRO has produced an independent report that identifies and interprets the information gathered at the workshop and via written submissions from a number of interested stakeholders. The full report can be found here
