Empire Energy Group has been given the green light from the Northern Territory Government to seek production approvals for its gas projects in the Beetaloo sub-basin – a game-changing moment for the area’s development of the vast resource.

The move comes after the government finalised all 135 recommendations from a 2018 inquiry into hydraulic fracturing. The company says the government’s new framework sets the scene for gas production approval in the region, including for its EP187 Carpentaria pilot project.

According to the NT Government, all applications made for gas production in the Beetaloo sub-basin — subject to the industry’s successful exploration and appraisal results — will go through a rigorous approval and monitoring process.


Empire says the regulatory framework the government has put in place is among the most extensive and robust in Australia and will allow the safe and sustainable development of the Beetaloo’s abundant natural gas resources.

Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) is a technique for recovering gas from a prospective shale rock. Companies can maximise gas production rates by optimising the placement of a well’s fractures along the target zone by piercing the reservoir with a chemical mixture known as “fracking fluid”.
