Report summary

To date the vast majority of exploration in the North Carnarvon has targeted gas in the Mesozoic Northwest Shelf play adding billions of barrels of resource. More recently explorers have focused on the potential of the deepwater sector and the bulk of future volumes are expected to come from this play. However the economics are challenging and operators will need exploration and development costs to come down or prices to rise to be confident of creating healthy full cycle value.
