Concern about lack of knowledge at Linc Energy site

A GEOLOGIST and groundwater management expert raised concerns with Linc Energy about a lack of knowledge at the Chinchilla site.

Brisbane District Court heard Dr Gary Love raised concerns about lack of data at an underground coal gasification site.

Dr Love said there were "significant deficiencies in our understanding of the hydrogeology at the UCG site.”

According to court documents, the concerns about a lack of monitoring were raised in November 2008, three months after the G3 gasifier site was ignited.

Linc, in liquidation, is not in court to defend allegations of causing serious environmental damage.

But five not guilty pleas were entered on January 29.

The trial continues. -NewsRegional
