Abstract

This summarised account of oil-drilling activities in Australia and New Guinea is given in two parts, first, a summary of past operations, and second, the status of investigations. Part 1 is almost entirely factual. The object has been to present a summary account of actual drilling operations, the results being obtained and the expenditure incurred therein. Part 2 states briefly the position we appear to have reached in the search for oil and summarises any present activity. The notes are given by States and Territories commencing with New Guinea and thence in clockwise order. "New Guinea" means the island of New Guinea and includes the Mandated section of the island as well as Papua.
