Onshore Australia

The State and NT Governments have primary responsibility for administration of the onshore petroleum exploration and production industry, although they cooperate with Geoscience Australia in several areas. There are also times when the Australian Government and other clients require Geoscience Australia to provide independent advice on onshore petroleum and other geological issues in the broad national interest.
