It's mission is to develop profitable, value added projects from world scale energy resources, with a current focus firmly on the evaluation and development of the company’s huge coal resources in the Arckaringa Basin of South Australia.

Corporate Overview

Altona listed on the AIM London Stock Exchange in March 2005.  It has a strong management team with many years experience in investment, mining and the energy industry globally.

Through its wholly owned subsidiary Arckaringa Energy Pty Ltd, Altona holds a 49% interest in three exploration licences covering 2,500 sq. kms in the northern portion of the Permian Arckaringa Basin in South Australia including three coal deposits – Westfield (EL4511), Wintinna (EL4512) and Murloocoppie (EL4513).  All three deposits lie close to the Adelaide to Darwin railroad and the Stuart Highway.

The company’s chief aim is to commercialise the Arckaringa coal-to-liquids and power project. Altona has forged a Joint Venture with CNOOC New Energy Investment Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of the China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), to complete the Project Bankable Feasibility Study and expedite the project's development.


“Energy security is absolutely critical to Australia’s economic prosperity and I believe coal-to-liquids and gas-to liquids will play a major role in Australia’s energy future.”
