Australia's Energy Commodity Resources 2022

Introduction

Welcome to the second annual edition of Australia’s Energy Commodity Resources 2022 (AECR 2022). Prepared by Geoscience Australia, AECR 2022 will be released in two stages.

This two stage approach allows stakeholders to access, through the available Overview, a summary of key trends in Australia’s energy commodity reserves, resources and production (gas, oil, coal, uranium and thorium) as at the end of 2020, including the impacts on Australia’s energy commodity resources at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Overview also includes the current status of Australia’s growing hydrogen and carbon capture and storage industries and data tables and commodity resource maps  for all energy commodities.

The detailed reports for each energy commodity resource, and the final component for release, will be available in late June 2022.
