The Coal Bed Methane (CBM) operator behind the UK’s largest onshore gas development, Dart Energy, has found its old CBM wells in Australia are now producing carcinogenic water. 50% of Dart’s 7-year-old wells in Dalby, Queensland were found to be leaking by the Queensland government. Tests showed high levels of benzene, toluene, ethylene and xylene […]

The production of […]

The 2-year-old company planning 22 coal bed methane wells in Airth, Scotland already has a history of boom and bust. Only a year after Dart Energy’s $300m launch in 2010 the company was forced to write off $101.8 after the impulse purchase of a smaller gas outfit (p4) proved to be much less valuable than […]
