Fracking in WA

As at March 2016, close to 50 million hectares of Western Australia was covered in gas licences.

Exploration for shale and tight gas is currently focused across three regions of the state- the Kimberley, the South West and the Mid West. No large scale production is yet taking place. (Click on the map for larger image, or see a regularly updated interactive map here).
