Australia’s LNG industry is shifting its focus to operations, following a A$200 billion investment into the sector that is set to make Australia the biggest exporter of LNG globally.

Much of Australia’s LNG industry is now shifting its focus to operations, following a A$200 billion investment into the sector that is set to make Australia the biggest exporter of LNG globally. This operations phase is likely to last for the next three decades.

This research builds on previous publications, most notably our 2013 paper, Extending the LNG boom: Improving Australian LNG productivity and competitiveness, which outlined a series of measures to improve Australia’s LNG capital productivity and competitiveness.
