To provide the Government with current, objective, reliable and timely petroleum data. The information is used for policy formulation, administration, analysis and monitoring.

Australian Petroleum Statistics is designed to meet the demand for information on production, refining, sales, trade and stocks of petroleum on a monthly basis.

Data are obtained from the Australian petroleum industry (which includes production, refining and oil trading) by mail questionnaire, and from ABS and IEA publications.

Data Detail
The data set covers the supply and demand chain:

  • Production of oil, condensate and gas;
  • Refinery production of petroleum products from liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) to bitumen;
  • Demand for products and analysis of end-use (such as leaded/unleaded petrol split);
  • Trade in petroleum; and
  • Stock levels of refinery feedstocks and essential petroleum products including road and air transport fuel.

Prices of petroleum products in other countries and various economic indicators (e.g. CPI petrol price movements) are also available.

Geographic Coverage
Australia, States and Territories.

Frequency of Data Availability
From August 1996, data are published monthly.

Historical Data
Data are available from January 1988.
