What is the Western Surat Gas Project?
As Senex’s flagship gas project, the Western Surat Gas Project involves the delivery of coal seam gas from acreage in the western part of Queensland’s Surat Basin, within the Maranoa region.
Senex’s permits are located 30 kilometres north of Roma, with the Project area spanning approximately 915 square kilometres. The acreage is adjacent to Santos-operated and Origin Energy-operated gas fields, the upstream gas fields feeding the GLNG and APLNG export facilities in Gladstone. Santos Comet Ridge to Wallumbilla gas pipeline runs through Senex’s acreage.
Senex has executed a binding 20-year gas sales agreement with GLNG to sell up to 50 TJ/day from the Project area to GLNG.

What is the current status of the project?
Senex has committed $50 million in 2017 to execute an appraisal program primarily in the south eastern corner of the permits, within the Glenora and Eos areas. The program is under way and involves drilling of 30 wells and construction of gas and water infrastructure facilities, in parallel with appraisal activities west of the Eos block.
We expect wells to be online in 2017 with an indicative target production rate of around 10 terajoules per day by mid-2018.
Regulatory approval processes are continuing, including environmental surveys and baseline assessments. Senex is also rehabilitating a number of existing wells in the permit areas, primarily in the Eos block.
