NT to the Front

It’s Northern Territory Resources Week and all eyes are looking North as three major industry conferences kick off under the roof of the Darwin Convention Centre.

NT Resources Week is renowned for the ability to connect Northern Territory businesses to national and global opportunities, drawing together several large industry gatherings including the South East Asia Australia Offshore & Onshore Conference (SEAAOC), Mining The Territory, and the Environmental Management & Logistics Forum (EMLF).

Mining the Territory is the focal point for Northern Australia’s mining community, while EMLF brings together environmental practitioners and members of the mining and onshore gas sectors to discuss the environment.

But it is SEAAOC which brings together the major players for Australia’s natural gas sector. As Northern Australia’s largest and longest established petroleum conference, SEAAOC presents several opportunities for developing the highly prospective NT gas sector..The potential development of the Territory’s gas reserves means decades of future wins including jobs, local business opportunities, value-adding industry infrastructure, and community investment.

In particular, the Beetaloo Basin, an area of around 28,000 square kilometres around 500 kilometres south of Darwin, has been tipped as the next big win for gas in the Top End. Development of the Beetaloo and the NT’s substantial wider gas resources is tipped to create 6,300 long term jobs, and offer long term economic benefit to Darwin, Katherine, and regional and Indigenous communities.
