Petroleum resources have immense strategic and economic value. Commonwealth, State and Territory governments in Australia control exploration for, and production of, these resources, although they engage private enterprise to perform these tasks. The complex legal relationship between governments and private enterprise in petroleum exploration and production provides the central theme of this subject. Australia’s federal system of government adds to the complexity of this relationship. This subject examines the nature, occurrence and extraction of petroleum resources, and considers the legal consequences of the fact that most of these resources occur naturally as fluids. It then directs attention to the statutory regimes that govern petroleum exploration and production in various Australian jurisdictions, assessing their legal attributes and efficacy in the wider context of foreign petroleum regimes.
