Project Summary

  • Spring Gully is a coal seam gas processing facility operated by Origin Energy Australia
  • Water extracted from the coal seams during the drilling process is not immediately useable due its salt content. To combat this problem, the water is treated at a reverse osmosis plant which separates the water into a concentrated brine and a usable clean water stream which can be used for industrial and construction purposes, for irrigation and to supplement environmental flows in local rivers.
  • The installed floating baffle will increase the retention time of this brine within ponds allowing for enhanced treatment
