Reserves & Resources


  • ATP854P is located near the township of Injune in central Queensland. The Wallumbilla - Gladstone gas pipeline passes through the eastern portion of the permit, and gas discovered in this block is well located to access infrastructure and move gas either through to Gladstone or in the south eastern Queensland, South Australian or Sydney gas markets.

    Initial focus of exploration in this permit was on two distinct CSG opportunities, the Walloon Coal Measures which are productive to the south on the Undulla Nose and the Roma Shelf, and the Permian Baralaba Coal Measure Play, which is productive at Fairview and Spring Gully

    Exploration drilling by an adjacent tenement holder (GLNG) has been conducted on the north eastern boundary of ATP854P and resulted in gas production from the Permian coals at the Spring Rock pilot wells.

    NSAI reviewed this Blue Energy tenement in January 2022 and revised their estimates of recvoverable gas resources upward by 300% to 398 PJ (3C) by Blue Energy.
