Latest petroleum acreage releases now available for bidding

Blocks released within Southern Carnarvon and Perth basin
Date: Friday, 24 July 2020

The latest petroleum acreage release of four areas within the Southern Carnarvon and Perth Basins have been gazetted and are now available for bidding.

The release features 112 blocks in the Southern Carnarvon Basin and 33 blocks in the Perth Basin.

In selecting the areas, DMIRS was mindful of constraints such as national parks and high conservation areas, prospectivity and interest from industry, and the restriction on the use of hydraulic fracturing. Permits that eventuate from this process will not be eligible to utilise hydraulic fracture stimulation.

The closing date for bids is Monday, 19 October 2020.

Visit the DMIRS’ website for further details including how to apply for acreage, royalties, online petroleum databases as well as environmental, land access and Native Title and other guidance information.
