Eureka Correspondence

Shale gas in Australia, giving a boost to investment, and retirees paying for parental leave.

Justin Braitling wrote an interesting article recently, Exploding shale. He made some generalisations, which while true in relation to some sources of shale gas in Australia are not true for all. For example, the Perth Basin is not remote and there are nearby gas pipelines that can be accessed. A number of companies are working in that region, including NWE and AWE. The former has had some good flow rates and an encouraging contingent resource estimates in relation to Arrowsmith 2. Certainly it has a way to go to establish commerciability.
