Framework report for Australia's oil and gas development released

01 Sep 2014
Australia’s Queensland Government has released a new framework for onshore oil and natural gas development in the region.

Queensland is potentially rich in deep gas and oil resources and this report aims to support the development of this potential, subsequently creating jobs and boosting the economy.

Queensland resources and mines minister, Andrew Cripps spoke out about the industry saying that it “has enormous potential to increase the state’s domestic and export gas supplies, while delivering the substantial economic benefits for Queensland that come from having a secure energy supply.”

This report forms part of the government’s framework for its 30-year vision for the resources sector in the state.
