Project Details


Origin, together with joint venture partners Sasol and Falcon Oil & Gas, is investing in the exploration of the Northern Territory's Beetaloo Basin. If successful, the Beetaloo Basin Project will create a substantial gas resource for future supply to domestic and/or international markets as well as a major new long-term industry for the Territory.

The Project itself consists of an extensive exploration program across three exploration permits in the Beetaloo Basin - permits EP 98, 117 and 76 - covering an area of more than 18,500 km2. The Beetaloo is situated south and east of Daly Waters, about 500km south-east of Darwin.

The Project is made up of three stages of exploration which will take place over a five year permit term. This term is granted by the Department of Mines and Energy on behalf of the Northern Territory Government. Origin will become the operator of the permits on behalf their joint venture partners, having over 20 years experience in gas exploration and production throughout Australia.

The joint venture is primarily targeting the Velkerri shale formation for shale gas and condensate.
