The patented technology owned by V2H International has been under development for a number of years and has application on both surface and underground operations, as well as in the Coal Seam Gas CSG industry. The technology replaces traditional drill heads with a high-pressure water system that can rapidly install extensive patterns of lateral radial boreholes into multiple coal seams from a vertical production well. For producers the technology has the capacity to dramatically lower capital and operational expenditure, increase well recoverability and lower environmental impacts. V2H International CEO Darren Rice said the completion of the merger and the success of the testing program in the United States would allow the company to begin rolling out the technology on a commercial basis.
Location[ edit ] The mining lease mostly covers the Moray Downs cattle station. The operational life was originally proposed for years. Federal approval was granted after 36 conditions were stipulated. In early Septemberit was reported the plan to dump dredge spoil in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park area had been scrapped.
This led to considerable controversy. The Department is presently reconsidering the proposal.
Bridges and flood levees must be built before the Southern mines are constructed. According to the current Environmental Impact Statement, the Carmichael mine would produce 60 million tonnes of coal per year at peak capacity. All the vehicles will be capable of automation.
When we ramp up the mine, everything will be autonomous from mine to port. It was widely reported that the Bank had withdrawn this offer. This includes more than half of the top 20 coal financing banks globally. Adani has ended the bank's advisory contract. On 5 AugustCommonwealth Bank announced that its advisory contract with Adani had ended,  nonetheless have not ruled out funding Adani and are viewed as the most likely local backer.
Some have encouraged customers to switch bank accounts and mortgages away from the large banks funding coal projects. Documents from Queensland Treasury released under Freedom of Information showed senior officials advising Ministers that Carmichael "is unlikely to stack up on a conventional project finance assessment".
LG has announced it will not proceed with a contract to buy coal from the mine.
This is despite the G20 commitment to phase out "inefficient" fossil fuel subsidies. Governments face budget constraints and spending on mining-related infrastructure means less infrastructure spending in other areas, including social infrastructure such as hospitals and schools.
But in it proposed a "royalty holiday" or reduced royalty rates,  as well as proposing to "co-invest" in infrastructure. The burning of that coal has been estimated to produce another million tonnes of carbon dioxide every year.Action groups such as 'Save Liverpool Plains' and 'Lock The Gate Alliance' have initiated lobbying and protest action.
However, Santos has recently released a report entitled 'The economic impacts of developing coal seam gas operations in North West NSW' undertaken by the Allen Consulting Group (the Allen Report).
