Egoli has a snippet on a WA company looking to extract coal seam gas - Resource Wrap: 08 February 2010 - WSA, SIR, WGP, ACB.
Westralian Gas and Power Limited (WGP) said it has obtained the final approval necessary to commence its new coal seam gas drilling program at the Kaloorup Road Prospect near Busselton. The company said Bunbury Drilling Company would immediately begin constructing an access road and a drilling pad. WGP said the commencement of drilling marks the completion of a long-term and detailed exploration program, which began in the area in 2004. The company said interest in the area was reinforced by local landowner stories of gas being found during BHP coal exploration in the area in the 1970s. WGP said the original report compiled in 1974 by BHP was pieced together, confirming the local stories of gas under pressure coming from the well.
