Buru Energy’s permits are in the Canning Basin, an area in the SW Kimberley region some 2,300 kms north of Perth. The area is low relief and is dominated by rangelands with large cattle grazing properties covering most of the area.
The Canning Basin is the largest sedimentary basin in Western Australia covering an area of some 530,000 sq kms. Geologically, the basin has similarities with highly productive Palaeozoic basins worldwide and is one of the few remaining areas in onshore Australia that is under-explored for petroleum.
Buru Energy holds the dominant acreage position in the Canning Basin. Our portfolio of production and exploration projects includes, amongst a number of other high value opportunities, a significant conventional oil discovery at the Ungani oil field and the tight wet gas resources of the Laurel Formation where a potential world scale gas and hydrocarbon liquids resource has been identified and is under appraisal.
