Abstract/Summary Australia has significant offshore oil and gas deposits under the sea bed and many of these are being exploited. Australia has about 0.3% of the world's oil reserves, the upstream petroleum sector contributes about 2.5% of the GDP and about 70% of Australia's crude oil and condensate production occur in the ocean sub-soil off the north-west coast. (More than one-half of Australia's oil and gas production is exported, most of it to the Asian region.)1 For the financial year 2008-2009 the total economic contribution of marine industries was A$44 billion of which offshore exploration and exploitation contributed A$13 billion, petroleum and natural gas about $11 billion and offshore gas production has risen some 70% over recent years2 with many more projects planned and partly completed.
