Australia Institutes Gas Press Conference

David Pocock, Monique Ryan, Richard Denniss speak out.

This YouTube video produced by the Australia Institute exposes the multinational energy corporations’ rip-off of our finite sovereign resources.

May 30, 2024 Australia Institute research has found that 56% of gas exported from Australia attracts zero royalty payments, effectively giving a public resource to multinational gas corporations for free. Around 80% of Australia’s gas is exported as liquefied natural gas (LNG). Most of this gas is extracted from gas fields in Commonwealth waters, but the Australian Government has failed to levy royalties on gas feeding six of the seven offshore gas LNG export terminals operating in Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Overall, this means over half the gas exported from Australia is royalty free.
