Developing and using oil and gas

Australia’s economy relies on the production, distribution and consumption of oil and gas.

Without oil, modern transport systems would not be able to function.

Without gas, many industries would lack power and a vital ingredient in some of their chemical processes. In addition, electricity production would produce more emissions and would be more expensive and less reliable.

To make oil and gas available for use, companies must first explore for, produce and distribute the oil and gas. Drilling rigs, wells and pipelines are vital to our modern way of life.
