Senex’s groundbreaking Atlas operation is 20km south-west of Wandoan in Queensland’s Surat Basin.

Atlas is supplying much-needed natural gas to the east coast market for production of electricity and everyday consumer products from bricks and beverage bottles.

Our range of commercial and industrial customers includes CSR Building Products, Orora, Visy Glass, Alinta Energy, CleanCo Queensland and Southern Oil Refining.

Senex was awarded additional Atlas acreage by the Queensland Government in September 2020, with production to be expanded using Senex’s existing hub-and-spoke infrastructure model.

Natural gas produced from Atlas supports the regional economy and generates royalties for the State Government to support roads, schools and hospitals. Senex is partnering with the Wandoan community, including landowners, businesses and community organisations, to develop and supply gas from Atlas to the domestic market.
