The author of this report argues that The $26 to $40 billion windfall received by LNG exporters in Australia should be taxed. The windfall is a result of war and in no way reflects effort by or costs faced by oil and gas companies. A...
This report presents new analysis on exactly how expensive gas appliances are to run compared to the electrical alternatives, and how much households can save over the long term from switching.
Just like Australia, Europe’s energy markets are in crisis. Wholesale prices for electricity and gas have risen dramatically since early 2021. The authors of this paper examine the causes of the current very high wholesale prices, high producer rents and price volatility. They also outline...
The ACT is preparing to electrify Canberra and transition away from the use of fossil-fuel gas by 2045. This position paper focuses on the government's work to transition the Territory away from gas use, to help reach a target of net zero emissions by 2045.
This is the thirteenth interim report of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s (ACCC) inquiry into gas supply arrangements in Australia. The ACCC has continued its focus on the operation of the East Coast Gas Market, where there are immediate and longer-term concerns.
The purpose of this paper is to revisit some earlier work that attempted to estimate the proportion of the mining industry that is foreign owned. This was made possible with access to the Bloomberg Professional Terminal database that gives corporate ownership by geographic region.
In this paper, the author asserts that petroleum industry claims, including by the Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (APPEA), that gas projects would be contributing billions of dollars in federal taxes has not eventuated.
This report outlines recent global, national and sub-national efforts to curtail methane emissions from oil and gas. It analyses how demand for cleaner gas might develop, delving into the drivers for buyers and others in the gas ecosystem. It concludes with policy recommendations and suggested...
AEMO has prepared this report to provide energy market participants and governments with information on the market dynamics, trends and outcomes during Q1 2022 (1 January to 31 March 2022).
While this report focuses on the risks to Australian gas projects, there are also opportunities for Australian energy companies in the transition to net-zero emissions. The ability of oil and gas producers to successfully transform their business and tap into these opportunities is another important...
The 2022 Gas Statement of Opportunities (GSOO) forecasts the adequacy of gas supplies, based on information from gas industry participants, to meet consumers’ changing gas needs from now until 2041 in Australian jurisdictions other than Western Australia and the Northern Territory.
The authors of this report argue that gas extraction in the North Sea is uneconomic and that energy policy should focus on investing in renewable technologies.
For decades, the Australian liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry has claimed that gas is clean, affordable and compatible with global decarbonisation goals. This report has been prepared to rebut the LNG industry’s claims with reputable data, analysis and insights.
AEMO has prepared this report to provide energy market participants and governments with information on the market dynamics, trends and outcomes during Q4 2021 (1 October to 31 December 2021).
This information paper examines the factors causing downward pressure on domestic gas demand in Australia’s eastern states and options to manage the potential pricing risks for current and future gas consumers.
This report estimates the emissions associated with the coal and gas projects currently planned in Australia. The vast emissions that would results from current planned fossil fuelled projects in Australia are not consistent with addressing climate change and achieving net zero emissions.
Some Nationals MPs have expressed concern about the impact that cutting emissions to zero in net terms by 2050 would have on Australia's resources industries, particularly coal. RMIT ABC Fact Check investigates. Verdict: Mr Joyce's claim doesn't stack up.
This interim report outlines the current findings from the Senate inquiry into oil and gas exploration and production in the Beetaloo Basin, with particular reference to the Industry Research and Development (Beetaloo Cooperative Drilling Program) Instrument 2021, which provides public money for oil and gas...
The Australian government’s 'gas led recovery' indicates deafness to a clear and present danger for all Australians. This report highlights the extent of Australia's methane problem, how it is set to grow if gas and coal continue to be pursued for domestic use and export...
