Mandatory petroleum data reporting

On 25 January 2013, the then Minister for Resources and Energy announced the Australian Government's decision to develop and implement a mandatory petroleum data reporting regime. Mandatory reporting will improve the quality and coverage of data on the production, sale, stock holding and trade of petroleum across the Australian supply chain.

On 20 May 2013, a discussion paper was released to facilitate the first stage of consultation with stakeholders on the design and implementation of the regime.

Stakeholder views are welcomed on specific aspects of the regime including: the type of data collected, collection methodology, reporting boundaries, timing, confidentiality, existing legislative options and minimising regulatory burden.

Petroleum producers, refiners, importers, exporters, distributors, retailers, final users (e.g. mining and petrochemical) and users of Australian petroleum data are encouraged to lodge a submission in response to the discussion paper by COB on 5 July 2013 to

The discussion paper and further information on the development of the mandatory petroleum data reporting regime is available at the Industry website.
