Australian Government Responsibilities
Australian Government (federal)
 National policy and regulation:
 Allocation of offshore petroleum titles
 Fiscal, monetary and taxation policy
 Foreign investment and trade
 Environmental approvals
State/Territory Governments (regional)
 Regional regulation:
 Allocation of onshore petroleum and
mining titles
 Collection of onshore royalties
 Also responsible for coastal waters
(3-mile zone)

Petroleum Industry Snapshot
Natural Gas
 158 Tcf / 4.5 Tcm of conventional gas
 +235 Tcf / 6.7 Tcm of coal bed methane
 400 Tcf / 11.3 Tcm of shale gas (US EIA)
 3rd largest global LNG exporter
 LNG exports of 24 mtpa (A$14 billion)
 Seven LNG projects under construction
 1,100 PJ of dom-gas production (260 PJ of
CBM)
Oil and Condensate
 Currently a net oil importer
 Significant condensate and shale liquids
potential

LNG
 Combined production capacity of over 24 mtpa
 Customers in Japan, China and Korea
Projects under Construction:
 Conventional Offshore LNG:
Gorgon LNG, Wheatstone LNG, Ichthys LNG
 Floating LNG: Prelude FLNG
 FLNG projects in planning:
Bonaparte, Scarborough, Browse

Key Investment Considerations
 Proximity to key Asian markets
 Strong economic resilience and world class
business environment
 Stable objective-based petroleum regulatory
regime
 Security of title with clear role of Government,
regulators and industry
 Pre-competitive data and analysis available
at cost of transfer
 Ongoing efforts to reduce regulatory burden
 Highly prospective acreage
 Near record levels of petroleum activity
 31 offshore areas released for work program
bidding in 2013
 Proposed 2014 release to include areas for
cash bidding

Development of the Oil & Gas Industry
Key Priorities
 Stable regulatory regime with ongoing
streamlining and improvement
 Best and safest offshore petroleum
operations in the world
 Environmentally sustainable development
 Attractive new investment opportunities to
support ongoing exploration and development
 Select cash bidding areas from 2014
Key Challenges
 Regulatory duplication
 Skills and labour
 Infrastructure capacity constraints
 Productivity
