Santos and Denison to pump more Queensland gas
Santos has been awarded tenders and Denison Gas the latest to gain new tenure in our proven gasfields.
Santos will seek new gas between Chinchilla and Roma and Denison Gas will start exploring for gas near Emerald.
Santos will explore across more than 2000 square kilometres of highly prospective areas in Queensland’s world class Surat and Bowen Basins.
Nearly half of this land can only produce gas for the domestic market.
Santos will be able to use their existing gas infrastructure and plug straight in and get gas to market faster.
Denison Gas will explore for gas to supply to Australian-only users from 568 square kilometres of land south-east of Emerald in the Bowen Basin.
With these latest decisions more than 7,000 square kilometres of land in Queensland now has been allocated for gas for the Australian market only.
Since 2015 nearly 80,000 km2 of land has been released for gas exploration with over a quarter of it guaranteed for the Australian domestic market.
