The McArthur Basin is located south-east of Katherine, Northern Territory, covering an area of approximately 180,000 square kilometres. With key technical attributes that are comparable to successful US shale basins, there is a large potential for unconventional oil and gas resources in the Basin.
Santos has a large footprint in the heart of the McArthur Basin, with interests in three prospective shale gas and oil permits with applications pending for a further two permits. These permits are located near critical infrastructure, such as a major highway, gas pipelines and a railway.
