McArthur Basin Zone

ONE OF AUSTRALIA’S MOST ACTIVE GAS EXPLORATION REGIONS

The McArthur Basin hosts multiple proven resource plays including the highly prospective Beetaloo sub-basin

  • One of the largest shale gas deposits globally and Australia’s largest undeveloped gas resource with an estimated 500 TCF of natural gas in place

  • Market access to 87% of population and 38 mmtpa of LNG export capacity

  • Conventional reservoir potential is also present in the basin

Region has attracted significant investment from energy operators and multiple ongoing work programs continue to prove up resource base and commercial viability

Supportive Territory government, recognising the importance of natural gas to industrial development and the Territory economy

  • Beetaloo regulatory framework finalised, greenlighting development of the sub-basin

PRIORITISED PERMITS ON THE MARGIN OF THE GREATER MCARTHUR BASIN

Potential wet gas window on shallower basin margin around the Beetaloo sub-basin

Targeting extension of Beetaloo Kyalla and Velkerri shale formations

Additional potential exists for conventional Bessie Creek sandstone reservoirs

Preliminary studies suggest key acreage is also prospective for natural Hydrogen and Helium

Proximal to existing gas pipeline infrastructure with access to east coast market and LNG export terminals

Opportunity to leverage peer operator activity and learnings to optimise exploration strategy and minimise costs

Strong relationships established with key local stakeholders since entering the region

EXPLORATION ACTIVITIES TARGETING NEAR-TERM DRILLING ON KEY ACREAGE

De-risking key acreage position with near-term focus on EP 258 – exploration agreement with Native Title holders in-place, Section 31 Deed executed with Northern Land Council and NT Government, and formal grant pending

Airborne gravity gradiometry survey commissioned to aid structural interpretation and optimise acquisition parameters and location of planned 2D seismic survey – further maturing prospectivity and drilling targets

Drilling decision targeted in 2024 on EP 258, and ongoing consultations with traditional owners to progress additional prioritised permit applications towards grant
