Uncontrolled subsurface gas migration and emission poses a number of risks to the environment and human health & safety from anthropogenic sources such as:-

  • landfill waste
  • abandoned coal mining
  • shale gas production
  • contaminated land from past industrial use (some dating as far back as Victorian times)
  • pipeline leaks from current industrial processes such as oil refining & chemical manufacture
  • Coal bed methane

And depending on the type of gas present, there is the potential for:-

  • an explosion
  • acute health effects e.g. headaches, dizziness, unconsciousness or even asphyxiation and death
  • chronic, long term health effects e.g. cancers.
  • Global warming
