PEL285 Petroleum Exploration Licence

Abstract

This dataset and its metadata statement were supplied to the Bioregional Assessment Programme by a third party and are presented here as originally supplied.

A shapefile defining the bounday of the Petroleum Exploration Licence (PEL) 285 covering the Gloucester Basin and held by AGL.

The location of the PEL area is approximately centred on the township of Stratford, approximately 70 kilometres (km) north of Newcastle in New South Wales (NSW). The area extends approximately 60 km north to south and approximately 20 km east to west comprising some 18 graticular blocks and about 1,308 square kilometres (km2). The area completely contains the Gloucester Geological Basin. The PEL area excludes existing mining leases (except Stratford Colliery), National Parks, state forest or nature reserves, Aboriginal areas and land vested in the Commonwealth of Australia. There are no World Heritage Areas or Ramsar Wetlands within the PEL. The PEL overlays the Local Government Areas of the Gloucester Shire and Great Lakes Council.

PEL 285 was granted in 1992 under the Petroleum (Onshore) Act, 1991. In December 2008 AGL Energy acquired PEL 285 from the joint venture of Lucas

Energy and Molopo to become the sole operator. The licence enables investigation of the potential for coal seam methane resources in the Gloucester Basin with a view to possible development of a coal seam methane production field in the near future. All exploration works are to be undertaken in accordance with Licence conditions

that are imposed by the Minister for Primary Industries and with the works program agreed with DPI.
