Senex Energy is a significant producer of natural gas to the east coast market with their natural gas powering homes and businesses, making goods commonly found in Australian homes and supporting jobs across industry.

Ventia continues to support Senex by providing drilling services for their two production operations in Queensland's Surat Basin.

The contract delivered more natural gas wells to Senex's newly expanded Surat Basin operations that has the capacity to supply the equivalent of more than 10% of Queensland's domestic gas supply.


'Senex is proud to announce the completion of our 54-well FY22 natural gas drilling program across our Atlas and Roma North developments in the Surat Basin.'

A big thank you to Ventia for your continued partnership in safely and successfully delivering our work program. 

'The completion of our drilling program has enabled gas processing capacity at Atlas and Roma North to be filled several months sooner than anticipated, delivering more reliable natural gas to the east coast market.'

Senex Chief Operating Officer, Darren Stevenson, June 2022


Since 2019 Ventia has provided drilling and completion services for Senex's $400 million Surat Basin natural gas development project in Queensland.

Ventia's Rig & Well Services business (previously Easternwell) drilled 80 natural gas wells to supply Senex's newly built natural gas facilities at their Roma North and Atlas developments.

Senex's Roma North development provides natural gas to their customer, GLNG, while their Atlas development is supplying natural gas to the east coast market for production of electricity and everyday consumer products such as bricks and beverage bottles.

Ventia's Rig and Well Services General Manager, Kyle Koziol said the latest contract builds on our successful partnership with Senex Energy and continues our support of regional Queensland businesses.

As two locally based companies, we recognise the importance of supporting local communities and providing flow-on economic benefits from our operations to local businesses.

We rely on local businesses to support our operations as we deliver these services for Senex in the Surat Basin. This includes the supply of crucial parts, equipment, fuel, transport and other services."
