Tamboran’s pure focus is on its acreage portfolio in the Beetaloo/McArthur Basin in the Northern Territory.

This basin is located in the Northern Territory of Australia, approximately 600 kilometres south of Darwin. Being proximal to a major industrial hub enables relative logistical and operational luxuries, like close access to key infrastructure through roads, a pipeline and a railway.

Its location means efficient access to Australian markets and beyond, with the northern port city of Darwin and the Eastern Seaboard of Australia to the east through Queensland.

The basin is of Proterozoic age, and demonstrates exceptional potential as a source of unconventional shale oil and gas. Two intersected shales exhibit thickness, organic content and gas in place that are amongst the best anywhere in the world.

Beetaloo / McArthur Project

Tamboran’s Beetaloo/McArthur Project is located in the Northern Territory in Australia. The project is comprised of the EP 161 exploration permit, and is located in close proximity to Darwin (~600km south), a major industrial and LNG export market. 

In 2020, Tamboran and its partner, Santos Limited (ASX: STO), made a declaration of discovery after additional appraisal work that was performed on the Beetaloo “play opening” well Tanumbirini-1.
