GPinfo is the most detailed and up-to-date database of Australasian petroleum exploration information available, including over 3,000 permits and 29,000 wells.

Our team of petroleum information analysts collect data daily and compile a monthly update to ensure our subscribers remain the most informed and up-to-date in the industry.


Our subscribers use GPinfo to inform critical business decisions.

GPinfo Permit Maps have been part of Finder’s success since the company’s beginnings. They are on the walls of everyone’s office and continually remind us of the scale and potential of the Australian petroleum basins. Thanks GPinfo!
