Tri-Star pioneered the Australian natural gas industry.

Tri-Star is a private, family-owned and operated company with a successful 40-year track record as an independent oil and gas explorer, developer and producer.

Tri-Star drilled Australia’s first commercially viable coal seam gas (CSG) in 1994 at the Fairview Field, 450 km north of Brisbane, Queensland (now operated by Santos on behalf of APLNG and fellow GLNG Project Participants, Total, PETRONAS and KOGAS).

In 1998, Tri-Star discovered the Durham Ranch and Spring Gully Fields (now operated by Australia Pacific LNG, a joint venture between Origin, ConocoPhillips and Sinopec).

These fields, discovered and developed by Tri-Star, are not only the best in Australia but some of the best in the world. Well productivity, production life and proximity to major infrastructure and ports compare favourably with other CSG fields in Australia and elsewhere.

Today, Tri-Star is an operator and non-operating participant in almost 3,000 wells in the Bowen Basin and the Surat Basins. Additionally, Tri-Star has exploration experience in the United States, Australia, China, Mexico, Argentina and India.

Tri-Star is involved in the entire minerals and hydrocarbons supply chain, from exploration and development to production and marketing.
