Oil & Gas
Australia is a resource-rich nation with significant deposits of oil and gas right across the country. In realising the economic benefit of these resources, standards have a key role to play throughout the entire supply chain in both the traditional resources sector as well as the new technologies in this space.
Standards Australia is actively involved in the oil and gas sector with key standards around the safe use of gas in the home in items such as barbecues and heaters, as well as in the large-scale oil pipelines across our vast landscapes.
Oil and gas infrastructure impacts so many aspects of Australian life, and the industry is going through a significant shift in heading towards a more efficient future. In this careful management of industry transition, and consumer interest the work of standards will be critical in ensuring a smooth shift in the years ahead.
