Abstract

This publication is the successor to Oil and Gas Resources of Australia 2003 and continues as the definitive reference on exploration, development and production of Australia's petroleum resources. It covers exploration, reserves, opportunity for growth of oil and gas resources, development, coalbed methane resources, production, crude oil and shale oil and supporting information and statistics. It includes a forecast of Australia's crude oil and condensate production from 2005 to 2025, and sustainability indicators for petroleum resources. Information on Australia's petroleum data availability is also included and an estimate of Australia's undiscovered oil and gas potential and a review of developments in geological sequestration of carbon dioxide. The Appendices describe wells drilled and seismic surveys carried out in 2004. There is also a chronological listing of offshore and onshore oil and gas discoveries to 2004 listings of all petroleum platforms and pipelines, and a map showing all Australian petroleum exploration and development titles, with a key of title holders and interests as at 1April 2005. OGRA 2004 provides the background for much of the advice on petroleum resources given to the Australian government and is a key source for petroleum exploration, production and service companies, petroleum engineers and geologists, energy analysts, stockbrokers and share investors.
