Beehive Prospect

WA-488-P contains the giant Beehive prospect with its Prospective Resource of up to 1.4 billion barrels of oil5 . The giant Beehive prospect, in a shallow water (about 40 metres) offshore location, is one of the largest undrilled hydrocarbon prospects in Australia.

Located near ENI’s Blacktip gas field and covered by a high-quality 3D seismic survey acquired in 2018, Beehive is a 180km2 isolated carbonate build up of Carboniferous age with 400 metres of mapped vertical relief and a crest at 4,100 metres.
