Beach has a long history of participation in exploration and development activities in the Otway Basin, stretching back to the early 1960’s. Current exploration, development and production assets are located onshore in both the South Australian and Victorian sections of the  Otway Basin. Included in these assets is the Katnook Gas/condensate Plant and associated Production Licences. The Otway is prospective for conventional gas and oil as well as unconventional gas and liquids.
