ATP synthesis is via a proton gradient, which as a minimum requirement needs a membrane. most abiogenesis proposes a replicator created earlier say on a clay particle or evaporated pool.
so off the top of my head i'd propose that its first use was probably in some kind of replicator synthtesis (1 strand-rna or dna) then later after simple membranes form then ATP synthesis can be explored.
