Australia, with   much of the country, yet to be explored has the largest proven gas reserves  in the Asia-Pacific region,  amounting to some  43 Trillion Cubic Feet (TCF) reports EIA Country Analysis August 2014.  Most of the traditional gas reserves, some 92 percent, are located  in the North West Shelf  in the Carnarvon and  Browse basins in north  Western Australia and the Bonaparte basin shared between Australia and East Timor, the Gippsland and Otway basins in South East  Victoria Province and the Cooper-Eromanga basin in  central Australia.  See Figure 2. In addition to natural gas, Australia had an estimated  33 TCF of commercially viable reserves of coal seam gas (CSG) in 2012,  principally located in North East Queensland Province in the Bowen and Surat basin,  which attracted a huge A $31 billion dollar investment in 2010.
