  • The Maryborough Basin permits ATP674P and ATP733P were granted as new exploration permits by the Qld Government on 31 December 2012, following the execution of Native Title Agreements with both the Butchulla and Port Curtis Coral Coast Peoples.

    The Maryborough Basin is unlike the Surat Basin, Bowen Basin and Cooper Basins, in that there is no existing petroleum production in the area, despite there having been some petroleum exploration in the region.

    The potential for hydrocarbon accumulation therefore is postulated to exist in the Tiaro Coal Measures, Gregory Sandstone, the Maryborough Formation and the Burrum Coal measures.
