Project Summary

This project examines economic questions that are of interest to WA. It analyses trends in production and consumption of natural gas and oil in the Asia Pacific region and worldwide.

The project aims at producing findings that can be used by policy makers and industry participants in Australia. The findings will be published in a major BCEC marquee and encompass research collaborations within the group of experts the investigators.
