Senex is committed to investing for the long-term to unlock both development-ready and exploration opportunities. We are working towards future development of Australia’s vast natural gas resources, which will help deliver affordable and sustainable gas supply.

Surat Basin

Senex was awarded preferred tenderer status for the Artemis block, near Miles, in May 2019 as part of the Queensland Government’s domestic gas acreage tender process. The exploration block has large estimated volumes of gas in the Walloon and Permian coals.

Senex is partnering with The University of Queensland’s (UQ) internationally recognised Centre for Coal Seam Gas (CCSG) to apply innovative, cost-effective technologies to confirm the commerciality of these resources. Our efforts to unlock these lower-permeability coals, for which the industry has yet to develop a solution, are part of our commitment to long-term development of natural resources in Queensland.
