Energy solutions from one of the world’s best shale basins.
Pure-play focus, proudly US-led, strategic partnerships, powering growth.
Founded in 2009, Tamboran Resources Limited is a public unlisted oil and gas company focused on developing early stage, top-decile unconventional gas reserves in the Australian Northern Territory. Holding a premium acreage in the highly prospective Beetaloo/McArthur basin, Tamboran is strategically positioned to rapidly commercialise these reserves as a feed supplier to existing Australian LNG plants, as well as addressing the domestic energy shortfall.
The exceptional nature of this discovery has the potential to elevate Tamboran to be one of the “Top 5” exploration and production (E&P) companies in Australia, delivering exceptional returns to our shareholders.
Tamboran Resources Limited is headquartered in Sydney, Australia with a global management team leveraging a significant depth of experience in the successful commercialisation of unconventional oil and gas throughout North America. The team brings a wealth of knowledge, including modern shale reservoir assessment, as well as cutting-edge drilling and frack completion design technology.

Our Strategic Advantage
Prime Location & World-class Asset
Tamboran’s primary asset is a highly prospective 1.4 million net acres in the Beetaloo/McArthur basin, the ‘play opening’ Tanumbrini well, was appraised by the late Aubery McClendon as the “best shale well he has ever seen.”
Beetaloo/McArthur Basin is one of the most active E&P areas in Australia, with significant appraisal drilling and investment in the last 18 months.
An expert North American-led team with a proven track record.
Tamboran Directors are widely known to be leading pioneers of North American unconventional resources, having led the initial development of multiple prolific US oil and gas unconventional resource plays, including the Duvernay, Eagle Ford, Marcellus, Montney, Woodford, Fayetteville and Haynesville. This collective expertise is a critical advantage in optimising the successful commercialisation of an early stage basin.
