Greenhouse Gas acreage release: indications of interest open

Main content area


12 February 2019

We would like to hear from companies interested in conducting exploration for greenhouse gas (GHG) storage sites in Australia’s offshore areas.

GHG acreage releases are held on an occasional basis, where there is sufficient industry demand.

The last GHG acreage release in 2014 resulted in 3 new GHG assessment permits being awarded in the Gippsland Basin. 

Indicate your interest

To indicate your interest, provide your contact details and a general location of the area that you may be interested in exploring to by 28 February 2019.

Following the expression of interest period, we will consider submissions and provide advice to Government on the possibility of a future acreage release.
