    • Social Licence andSustainable Development: QER’s Perspective 28 June 2011
    • QER’s vision:Help secure Australia’s energy futureOur mission is to build and operate a safe, economically viable and sustainable shale to liquid fuels industry in Queensland.
    • July 2009
    • Sustainable Development•  Reduce •  Restore •  Remove processes •  Rehabilitation •  Reliable plant •  Plantations •  Renewables & energy reduction•  Recycle •  Fuel gas•  Reuse •  Cogeneration •  Waste streams •  Byproducts
    • Australia’s growing oil demand-supply gap Business as Usual Assumed 23% Efficiency Gains Imports in 2030 = 335 MMbbls Unconventional fuels Conventional oil supplyMMbbl Source: EnergyQuest 2009

    • Supporting the community
    • Social licence: engaging our communities
    • Social licence - understanding our community’s requirements and valuation •  What is the maximum value we can add? •  What opportunities and prospects are our communities looking for? •  Are there basic requirements missing now?•  What capability could the community fulfill in the future?•  Where should the work be done?•  What other linkages can we introduce?

    • Environment: Technology to reduce emissions• Thermal oxidizers• Lower temperatures• Lump processing• Lower gas and liquid volumes• Sealed processes and tanks• Iso-kinetic sampling• Process and emissions measurement
    • QER’s planned project development stages ~ 2017 - 2019 Commercial 2014-15 Stage II at Commercial 20,000 bbls per day Stage I plant 2011 Technology demonstration plant - QLD 2007 Colorado pilot plant trials
    • Demonstration plant objectives.....•  Demonstrate safe and environmentally sound performance to community and government   $100m capital (70% regional QLD)   150 construction/50 permanent •  Develop product market acceptability •  Maximize technical and process development •  Build operational expertise
    • The fuels QER will produce in Queensland•  Synthetic crude oil for Australia’s refineries •  High cetane •  High energy density Wide Cut QER•  Ultra-low sulphur diesel Naphtha Low USA Sulphur No. 2 Diesel Diesel•  High quality jet fuel
    • Shale to liquids can be part of a positive future “Australia could find itself with a clean shale-oil industry employing 6000 people and adding $30 billion to the economy over the next 20 years. It has the potential to sit alongside clean coal, geothermal, coal seam gas,Hon Peter Beattie biofuels, solar and wind in a realisticFormer Queensland Trade CommissionerThe Australian newspaper future global energy mix.”14 August 2010
