The Resources and Energy Quarterly (REQ) contains the Office of the Chief Economist’s forecasts for the value, volume and price of Australia’s major resources and energy commodity exports.

The publication provides:

  • an outlook for global commodity prices, demand and supply
  • up-to-date global production and consumption data
  • forecasts for Australian values, volumes and prices for key resources and energy commodities
  • reviews of relevant topics and issues
  • detailed statistical tables


As at 16 November 2021, revisions have been made to Australia historical production figures for silver and iron ore in the 'REQ September 2021 Historical Data' spreadsheet and iron ore production in 'REQ September 2021 Forecast Data' spreadsheet.

The full report also reflects revisions to the Major markets for Australia’s resources and energy exports in 2020-21 infographic on page 6, and Australian iron ore production volumes in Table 4.2 (page 45). These revisions do not affect any other figures in the rest of the spreadsheet or report.
