Australia Great Australian Bight exploration basin

Report summary

The Great Australian Bight Basin is located off the southern coast of Australia. Compared to other, higher profile basins around Australia, the basin has seen minimal exploration activity and no discoveries have been made.  The basin is exposed to harsh weather conditions and rough sea states, and developments will have to be built to high specification to withstand the conditions. The unproven frontier basin is touted as one of the most prospective in the world and has the potential to create value if very substantial volumes of liquids can be discovered. However, at this stage, various assumptions in this analysis including potential resource volumes, forecasted success rates, discovery sizes, spending in the basin, are best estimates and subject to a wide range of unknowns and uncertainties.
