How we produce gas
AWE is a highly competent and capable operator with extensive international experience and expertise in upstream oil and gas operations including the long-term production of oil and gas from conventional reservoirs in the north Perth Basin.
AWE is not pursuing Coal Seam Gas (CSG) in the Perth Basin, but is exploring for shale gas, tight gas and conventional oil and gas targets.
Oil and natural gas have been produced from a number of conventional reservoirs in the Perth Basin including the onshore Cliff Head oil project and the onshore Dongara and Woodada fields. Learn more about how oil and natural gas is produced from conventional reservoirs through APPEA’s Oil and Gas explained resource.
Natural gas is identified by the geology of the underground area where it is sourced from. Learn more about the difference between shale, tight and coal seam gas.
Hydraulic fracturing is a technique used after a well has been drilled which increases the flow of oil and gas into a well from trapped underground reservoirs. Learn more about how the hydraulic fracturing process works.
AWE has extensive protection measures in place to ensure that its exploration and production activities can be undertaken safely and without causing harm to people or the environment. Learn more about how AWE keeps hydraulic fracturing safe.
