Drillsearch Energy is one of the largest landholders in the Cooper Basin area of Central Australia.

Since the first discovery of hydrocarbons in the area in the 1960s, the Cooper Basin has grown into Australia’s premier onshore oil and gas producing region. Compared to other onshore producing regions, the Cooper Basin is relatively underexplored, offering considerable scope for oil and gas explorers such as Drillsearch. The Cooper Basin is also well served by processing and transportation infrastructure linking the area to the East Coast gas market, Australia’s major cities, and the Gladstone LNG terminals.
