Onsite Supplies Equipment to Beetaloo Basin Exploration Project in NT


Exploration in the Beetaloo Basin in the Northern Territory has resumed, and Onsite has provided specialist equipment to assist with developments at the site.

Onsite Darwin supplied six Metro LED Lighting Towers and a Boom Lift to the Beetaloo Basin exploration project, located 600km south of Darwin, near the town of Daly Waters.

The Beetaloo Basin is estimated to have gas reserves of approximately 6.6 trillion cubic feet and could hold more than three times the annual global consumption of natural gas.

Exploration activities are expected to create important economic opportunities for local businesses and communities in the region and across the territory. Beetaloo is promising to be a significant new source of gas in Australia. The region could well become a world-class hub for gas production and associated manufacturing and services in the future.

Exploration in Beetaloo began this year after the Northern Territory Government lifted a three-year moratorium on the natural gas extraction method, hydraulic fracturing, in 2018. The decision followed findings by a government-lead scientific inquiry which identified that the practice can be carried out safely.

Onsite’s lighting tower units were favoured for the project for their unique, compact and stackable form. This minimises delivery loads and maximises fuel-efficiency, reducing the overall cost.

Onsite has helped many of Australia’s largest mining companies reduce their rental equipment hire overheads. Our industry specialists have decades of experience in the Mining sector and can offer tailored advice on the best rental assets for any project.
