ATP1112A is located in the Carpentaria Basin of North Western Queensland. It is located south of the Gulf of Carpentaria region and approximately 40km west of Normanton.
The area has had little exploration seismic or drilling. The focus will be on delineating the prospective marine shale facies for shale gas and oil potential. Early Cretaceous sandstones sealed by the mid Cretaceous mudstones within the Carpentaria Basin provide excellent reservoir potential.
Recent exploration conducted by other Operator's to the west of Blue's application area has yielded hydrocarbon discoveries and gas flows
