The Queensland Government has asked us to look at ways of streamlining the regulations, in particular:

  • a reduction of duplication (if any)

  • whether regulations can be combined and fee structures simplified

  • alternative approaches.

 

Our review of the government’s approach to regulating the coal seam gas industry includes:

  • options for regulatory reform

  • options for the government to recover the costs of regulating the coal seam gas industry based on best practice.

 

Key issues in our investigation will include:

  • environmental outcomes

  • other stakeholders’ interests including landowners and concurrent mineral rights holders

  • costs of compliance and administration of regulations.
