New Timor Sea Gas Province

Chief Minister Adam Giles has welcomed confirmation of a potential new Timor Sea gas province on the Territory’s doorstep.

Resources company Eni has just completed drilling an appraisal well at the Evans Shoal Gas Field in the Bonaparte Basin, 300 kilometres northwest of Darwin.

“The results of this assessment drilling by Eni have revealed the Evans Shoal Gas Field contains at least eight trillion cubic feet (TCF) of raw gas, with a likely three to four TCF of that being recoverable for processing,” Mr Giles said.

“It presents another exciting gas opportunity for the Territory and is one more encouraging step in our efforts to establish Darwin as North Australia’s gas processing and marine supply hub."
