• With significant gas and oil reserves that are under-explored by global standards, there’s still major potential for organic growth as these sectors remain critical to the Australian economy.

    As growing demand puts increasing pressure on existing oil and gas, many underestimate the cash generation that will come from Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) projects once they come on stream. They are big employers, particularly in remote locations, huge users of existing and future infrastructure and big sources of export dollars.


KPMG’s Global Oil & Gas Group works with companies across the project lifecycle (upstream and downstream) from explorers, developers, producers and services companies.

The team delivers services covering traditional audit and tax, as well as a range of advisory offerings including transaction support, debt advisory, management and risk consulting.

How KPMG can help address oil & gas challenges

Improving productivity

Australian cost pressures are impacting our productivity agenda and limiting international investment in future big LNG projects.

Managing demand for Australian natural resources

Asian demand for our natural resources is fuelling higher prices and investment in projects they see as critical to securing their supply. However, large LNG projects will still need to be brought in on time and on budget.

Managing complex policies

Managing complex regulation and responding to changing government policy, such as approvals, Petroleum Resource Rent Tax (PRRT). The sector must also navigate the shortage of skilled workers and contractors, and deal with financial market volatility and readiness-to-operate in a post-commissioning environment.

Achieving sustainable growth

Sustainable growth through technology and innovation related to productivity and efficiency.

Managing higher funding and input costs

Managing higher costs, which will be an absolute necessity as capital markets and human resources costs change.
