  • Costs of Developing Fossil Fuels
    • Ichthys LNG Project, NW Australia
      • One of the biggest off-shore gas fields, 260m below water
      • Produces 10 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) per day for the demand in Asia
      • 900 jobs were created in the construction of the pipeline
    • Shale Gas, Tarankai, NZ
      • 48 hydraulic fracturing activities
      • Environment concerns are is the risk of water pollution and the possibility of seismic activity
      • The gas is trapped underground in shale rock
      • As shale is impermeable, the gas can't be drilled and then pumped out, so fracking has to be used
