statements relate to future events, such as anticipated revenues,
earnings, business strategies, competitive position or other aspects of our

materially from what is expressed or forecast in such forward-looking
statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance
and involve certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions that are difficult
to predict such as oil and gas prices; operational hazards and drilling risks;
potential failure to achieve, and potential delays in achieving expected
reserves or production levels from existing and future oil and gas
development projects; unsuccessful exploratory activities; unexpected
cost increases or technical difficulties in constructing, maintaining or
modifying company facilities; international monetary conditions and
exchange controls; potential liability for remedial actions under existing or
future environmental regulations or from pending or future litigation;
limited access to capital or significantly higher cost of capital related to
illiquidity or uncertainty in the domestic or international financial

Cautionary Note to U.S. Investors – The SEC permits oil and gas
companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only proved, probable
and possible reserves. We use the term "resource" in this presentation
that the SEC’s guidelines prohibit us from including in filings with the SEC.
U.S. investors are urged to consider closely the oil and gas disclosures in
our Form 10-K and other reports and filings with the SEC. Copies are

Australia’s Advantage
 Stable fiscal and
regulatory regime
 Close to LNG customers
 Skilled and experienced
 Some existing
 Abundant discovered
and proved resources

Global LNG Market Balance (Source: PFC 2014)
 If all planned & speculative capacity is built, we may see a
potential for LNG oversupply (competitively affecting Australia)
 However, supply is expected to be constrained due to execution
risks and cost pressures

While Canadian costs seem too low, they are still likely to be lower
than Australian greenfield projects

“While the industry, partners and governments have together delivered
more than $160 billion in committed LNG investment in Australia,
another $100 billion-plus in projects hangs in the balance"

Addressing the Cost Challenge: Brownfield Development
 Use of existing infrastructure reduces capital costs
 Leverages operations best practice e.g. experienced operator, skilled
workforce, existing construction and operator relationships
Examples: Darwin LNG and Australia Pacific LNG
 Darwin LNG
 Cost advantage of tying into
existing infrastructure
 Permitted for 10 MTPA
 Expansion land available
 Australia Pacific LNG
 Cost advantage of tying into existing
 Permitted for 18 MTPA
 Land available for 2 additional trains
 Leverage Operations Best
 Strong relationships with train
construction companies
 Experienced operator

Potential to Unlock Stranded Gas
 Complement not replace
existing options
 One Australian project
committed: Shell’s Prelude
 Multiple projects considering
FLNG as a development option
 Opportunity to position
Australia as a global FLNG hub
 Center of excellence for operations,
maintenance, supply chain and
Reserves Do Not Equal Development
 Policy makers must think big
 Stable fiscal regimes attract global
 Sound regulation is vital
 Based on prudent scientific fact
 Remain open to innovative
technology such as FLNG
 Laws should promote investment
 Domestic gas reservation policies may
deter investment
Reserves Do Not Equal Development
 Industry must act responsibly
 Continuously improve safety and
environmental performance
 Continuously improve technologies,
processes and safeguards
 Better inform stakeholders about
facts and offer scientifically
accurate information
 Genuine engagement with
communities - open, honest and
 Commitment to local content to
deliver local capacity building and
economic participation
 Australia has delivered world class LNG projects
 Australia’s advantage
Close to LNG customers
Existing infrastructure
Highly experienced workforce
Abundant resources
 Challenged to remain cost competitive in a global marketplace
 Addressing challenges
 Brownfield developments
 Innovative technology – FLNG
 Investment decisions need certainty
 Stable fiscal settings
 Sound regulatory policy
 Industry must remain committed to transparency and sustainability
