Purpose

To collect production data from all minerals, oil and gas operations in the Northern Territory (NT) and the offshore waters that the NT administers, including the Ashmore and Cartier Islands adjacent area.

The Mineral and Petroleum Production Collection compiled by the NT DME is broken into two parts, mineral production (including uranium) collected by the Mines Division, and oil and gas production collected by the Energy Division. The Mines and Energy Divisions have different collection methodologies.

Description

Mineral Production

Mineral production data are submitted by mine operators in the NT on a quarterly basis. Commodity classifications are provided on the questionnaire that operators complete. There are approximately 20 metallic mineral mining operations and 20 nonmetallic mineral mining operations in the NT, and approximately 360 mining titleholders on five different types of title.

The NT DME and the ABS differ in their classification of alumina. NT DME classifies and reports alumina production under the mining sector, while the ABS classifies alumina as a manufactured commodity and therefore reports production of it in the manufacturing sector. However, bauxite production is not included in the ABS' manufacturing data and is separately recorded in the mining sector.

Method of collection

Oil and gas production data are submitted by all oil and gas producers in the NT and the offshore waters that the NT administers (including the Ashmore and Cartier Islands adjacent area) on a monthly and quarterly basis. Data are collected using a faxed questionnaire. Uranium is reported as an energy product.
