Canning Basin shale gas unconventional play

Report summary

The Canning Basin covers about 450,000 square kilometres onshore in the Kimberley region of northwest Australia. Marine, organic-rich shales from the Goldwyer Formation are estimated to hold about 490 tcf of gas-in-place.The physical isolation of the Canning Basin is a major obstacle to developing its shale gas resources, entailing high costs and long lead times. The high level of interest in Canning Basin shale gas between 2011 and 2013 has subsided. Little investment has taken place since.
