What is the Western Surat Gas Project?
The Project involves the proposed extraction of natural gas from coal seams in the western part of Queensland’s Surat Basin, in the Maranoa region.
Senex’s permits are located around 30 kilometres north of Roma with the Project area spanning approximately 990 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 a work program primarily in the Glenora and Eos areas, involving drilling of 30 wells, constructing gas and water infrastructure facilities and appraisal activities west of the Eos block.
We expect wells to be online by mid-2017 and producing around 10 terajoules per day by mid-2018.
Regulatory approval processes are continuing, including environmental surveys and baseline assessments, and plug, abandon and rehabilitation of legacy wells continue primarily in the Eos block.
