World-leading regulation 

The Beetaloo Basin is one of the most promising shale gas resources anywhere in the world, but the viability of a gas resource is about more than just the volume and quality of the resource — a major factor is whether we can extract the gas safely.

The Northern Territory has put in place some of the world’s most rigorous regulations to ensure that our exploration and potential future production ensures the environment is protected at all times. When we are drilling, we have strict conditions and controls we must meet and we have additional safeguards in place to best protect the area’s land and water. We don’t frack until these controls and safeguards are in place.
