A NEW round of coal seam gas information sessions has been designed to help landholders preparing to enter CSG negotiations.
Hosted by AgForce Projects, sessions will be held in Mitchell, Injune and Roma from July 17-19.
After delivering more than 80 information sessions to 1900 landholders across Queensland, AgForce Projects CSG project manager Kate Dunn said the second round of sessions will give landholders the tools they need to achieve a fair conduct and compensation agreement (CCA).
"Dealing with a CSG company can be very daunting and like most Queenslanders, primary producers don't have extensive legal knowledge or negotiation experience," Ms Dunn said.
"We want to give landholders the key tools they need to have the best chance at negotiating a fair CCA. These sessions will offer detailed negotiation tips and help landholders prepare property information to use when negotiating a CCA.
"We will give you the information you need to help assess the impacts of CSG activity on your property for use in CCA negotiations."
Ms Dunn said while the sessions were designed for landholders who have previously attended a CSG information session, they provided vital information for all landholders concerned about the expansion of the industry.
AgForce's CSG Project was launched in 2011 in response to demand from landholders for more information about this burgeoning industry.
Sessions provide independent information about landholder rights under the current legislation implemented by the Queensland Government, as well as tips on how to keep quality environmental baseline records and use property mapping to record on-property impacts.
These information sessions are delivered free to all producers. To register, visit agforceprojects.org.au and complete a registration form, or call 07 3238 6048.
