The best performing gas well in Queensland produces $1 million a day
 - an average coal seam gas well is worth about $60,000 a day.

The gas industry likes to call it 'natural gas' - the public knows it as methane.
"Unconventional forms" of gas include shale oil, shale gas, coal seam gas and tight gas and typically require the controversial hydraulic fracturing technique known as ''fracking''

Hydraulic fracturing or "fracking" is where a combination of water, sand and chemicals is forced at high pressure down and across a coal seam, fracturing the seam and creating fissures which release the gas for extraction. Fracking has been linked to the poisoning of ground water and damaging of aquifers.

In 2:45 Robert F. Kennedy Jr. discusses fracking and the importance of a strong regulatory structure for enforcing environmental standards in the coal and gas industries - and the big rush by the gas industry to avoid and/or change any law which gets in their way.
