For more information please visit the Compliance and Monitoring webpage | DEM-ERD has just released the first “Basin in a Box” data-package covering the Simpson and Pedirka Basins. The dataset is available via the “Data and Publications” page. Each package is a consolidated set of seismic and well data to facilitate new ventures and exploration assessments of frontier basins in South Australia. Data releases for other frontier basins will follow.

The Energy Resources Division of the Department of State Development commissioned local energy consultancy firm Core Energy to independently assess the economic position of existing and proposed gas (and oil) supplies in South Australia, in the context of national and international market settings.

The resultant Core Energy Cooper-Eromanga Basin Outlook report aims to bring greater transparency to the competiveness of alternative Australian gas plays.

The report provides timely intelligence for market in relation to marginal costs to produce gas at the gate of gas processing plants supplied by competing companies; and the sensitivity of key Australian gas users to increases/decreases in the delivered wholesale price of gas

Estimates in the report reflect analysis of public information to 30 June 2015. Estimates provided exclude any future cost and well performance improvements that are now targeted by gas suppliers.
