Terrabos’ principal area of expertise is in onshore oil and gas exploration and the mining industry, offering a complete range of field services as a one-stop-shop. Terrabos is the first onsite and last offsite giving clients one point of contact for all aspects of their operations, and engendering complete confidence from relevant stakeholders that all agreements, including health, safety and environmental regulations will be adhered to.

To date, Terrabos has negotiated and managed land access agreements for multiple oil and gas companies onto 26 pastoral stations for on-ground operations, and a further 30 stations for minor exploration works. This includes agreements with traditional Aboriginal owners under the Native Title Act and the Aboriginal Land Rights Act. This achievement is unsurpassed to date and covers an area 2/3 of the size of Victoria.
