New research to improve understanding of seismic impact

Australia's oil and gas industry supports more research on how seismic surveys affect tiny marine creatures. CSIRO research indicates that zooplankton biomass recovers only three days after completion of a seismic survey.

SA Budget maintains the PACE

The South Australian Budget confirms the Government’s ongoing support for gas exploration. The Plan for Accelerating Exploration (PACE) program is helping bring more gas to market and will benefit local businesses and consumers.

Revised gas forecast shows no need for export controls

The latest Energy Supply Outlook shows there is no need to restrict Queensland LNG exports. By discouraging new gas investment, gas export controls could further weaken gas supply.

Finkel Report charts way out of policy impasse

The Finkel Review’s recommendations – including a Clean Energy Target and removing blanket bans and moratoria on gas development – could resolve the climate policy impasse and put downward pressure on energy prices.

Statoil move a boost for exploration in Great Australian Bight

Norway's Statoil will pursue plans to explore for oil in the Great Australian Bight. Success in the Bight would attract substantial investment to South Australia and see significant local job creation.

Victoria seeks to punish other states for its own policy failure

The Victorian Government's calls for tougher gas export controls are an attempt to evade its responsibility for helping to create a tight east coast gas market.
