Noise assessment for a proposed gas plant extension
AGL operates a coal seam gas project in Camden, NSW. At present the project consists of 130 wells, low pressure underground gas gathering lines and a gas plant. An extension of this project is proposed in the near future. We have been engaged at various stages of the project to undertake predictions and assessments of both operational and construction noise. We have also undertaken compliance monitoring.
Because many of the gas wells are located in close proximity to residential receivers, there was a need to reduce drilling noise emissions to facilitate drilling at night. We advised the drilling team on potential mitigation options. After implementation of some of our recommendations, we conducted a noise audit of the drill rig and a significant reduction was measured.
