How much gas does Australia have?
Australia has more than enough gas for both domestic and export markets – provided that gas exploration and production is not impeded. In 2013, the entire Australian economy consumed about 1.1 trillion cubic feet (TCF) of gas, and exported a further 1.1 TCF. Australia has 203 (TCF) of proven coal seam gas resources and more than 80o TCF of estimated total natural gas resources (including proven and contingent resources). This is enough to power a city of 1 million people for 16,000 years.
