Natural Gas, short history

A very short summary of the very long history of natural gas

Natural gas – even from coal seams – isn’t new. In fact, it is very, very old. Natural gas formed over millions of years ago from decaying plant and animal matter. As plant and animals died, their remains mixed and layered with water, sand, and mud. As the mud and sand formed into rock, it […]

Australian federal election poll summary - 7 September 2013

Exit polling shows anti-gas campaigners missed the mark

The Greens & the Katter Party campaigned heavily on natural gas issues: as did some ALP candidates in surveyed seats. For some time, they have tried to tell Australia that natural gas development will be a key election issue and they tried to make this election a referendum on this issue. To that end – […]

Christine Milne - Australian Greens

The Australian Greens Party policy vacuum highlighted on ABC 7.30 Report

The full interview can be seen here. Not only are the Greens saying ‘no’ to jobs but ‘no’ […]

Let’s act on gas or face being burnt

NSW is the only mainland state in Australia without a significant natural gas industry. Santos Vice President Eastern Australia, James Baulderstone, writing in The Australian this week said unless NSW can quickly secure future supplies of natural gas by 2016 or shortly thereafter, many businesses, in particular large industrial customers could face difficult decisions about […]

Gas Exports

Misguided calls for domestic gas reservation

Calls to restrict billions of dollars-worth of LNG exports in favour of a domestic gas reservation policy will not lead to lower natural gas prices or increase gas supply. More than $60 billion worth of natural gas projects in Queensland alone, which employ about 30,000 people, would need to be dramatically altered to adhere to […]

Katter confusion on natural gas

The scramble to appease the noisy minority continues through the election. For example, the Katter Australia Party’s (KAP) confused position on natural gas production and calls for protectionist policies that disappeared in the late 1970s only serve to put jobs at risk. It’s clear the KAP does not approve of an industry that currently employs […]

Australia Natural Gas Industry Jobs

Gas nay-sayers cost jobs

Australia can enjoy an LNG boom only if we outpoint our competitors. Writing in The Australian, APPEA Chief Executive David Byers highlighted why signing the Our Natural Advantage petition is crucial to securing and improving the economic benefits associated with developing natural gas reserves. “There are a small number of people inside – and a […]

Knock knock – McKinsey sizes up the natural gas opportunity

Knock, Knock, a recent report by McKinsey & Company estimates that the commissioning of all the $180 billion LNG projects currently on the drawing board in Australia will increase national GDP by 1.5 per cent, create about 150,000 jobs and deliver tax revenues equal to nearly half the total federal debt. The encouraging thing, the […]
