Visualizing the Growth of Coal Seam Gas Production in Australia

The Guardian has created several data visualizations mapping the location and growth of  production in Australia of coal seam gas, a natural gas trapped in seams underground which sometimes requires hydraulic fracking to extract. One chart shows that coal seam gas has climbed from being nonexistent in 1995 to 30 percent of the country’s gas production in 2016. Maps show when and where drilling has increased and reveal that the ballooning of the production of coal seam gas in Queensland coincided with the region’s requirement to have at least 13 percent of its power come from gas by 2005.

Take a look.
