Timor Sea Oil and Gas

The Northern Territory is conveniently located close to the vast oil and gas resources of the Timor Sea, which contains over 20 trillion cubic feet of known gas reserves. The Timor Sea is home to the world scale Bayu-Undan and Sunrise gas fields. Major oil developments in the Timor Sea include the Elang/Kakatua, Laminaria/Corallina and Buffalo projects.

Exploration commitments offshore are high, with the expectation of further oil and gas discoveries in the future.

Centrally located to Asian markets and a number of major resource projects in the Timor Sea and beyond, Darwin is rapidly developing into a service and supply hub for the region.
