‘The price provides a fitting picture of global trends and, as such, is widely cited.‘ Because of this, our editors frequently cover the latest news of the sector and provide in-depth analysis.
Australia is a reliable and competitive player in the crude sector. It has the largest gas reserves in the Asia-Pacific region, and is a world leader in Liquid Natural Gas innovation.
Attractive for Foreign Investment

History shows that potential gains can be made in the oil and gas sector, when investing in the right companies, at the right time.
