Western Canning Basin (Bids close 27 October 2005)

The two release areas encompass prime acreage in the Canning Basin with proven source rock potential, favourable reservoir development and large, seismically mappable structures. Basin fill is essentially Palaeozoic and there are pre-salt and post-salt targets. The areas cover parts of the central Broome Platform and the Willara Sub-basin. The sizes of the blocks are 5,999 sq km and 5,092 sq km. The sealed Great Northern Highway passes through the release areas and connects the areas with the port of Broome.

The release areas have had 1,000 km of 2D seismic reprocessed by Robertson Research. RPS Energy has prepared a prospectivity report, and a number of leads have been mapped and scoping economics calculated using basic Monte Carlo volumetrics.

Northern Perth Basin (Bids close 27 October 2005)

The more northerly Perth Basin release area lies about 20 km south of the Woodada gasfield, while the more southerly release area is situated 9 km west of the Gingin gas discovery and 8 km east of the Walyering gas discovery. The sizes of the blocks are 444 sq km and 810 sq km.

The Parmelia gas pipeline and a sealed highway connect south to the Perth metropolitan area and the Kwinana oil refinery respectively.

Acreage release CDs will be available from the Department of Industry and Resources and are to be made available at the PESA Farmin Seminar and the APPEA Conference. A web version is also to be made available from April 2005: www.doir.wa.gov.au/mineralsandpetroleum/acreage_releases.asp

The acreage release CD package contains information about the release areas, land access and how to make a valid application for an exploration permit.

The Department of Industry and Resources (DoIR) produce the booklet in cooperation with industry and Resource Information Unit (RIU).
