“The question that we’re going to be asked in the coming months is, do we need to get more oil?” 

– Australian oil industry chief, Mark Stewart.

“The question we’re not going to get asked is how many oil rigs we need, how many ships we need.” 

As of mid-2018, there were only a few oil rigs operating in Australia. 

“It’s a very difficult question to answer because it’s so close to the year,” said Craig McLean, head of strategic planning at the Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association (API). 

“We’re still a bit of a work in progress in terms of the technology.

We’re just trying to get to the point where we’re happy with the technology and the technology is in place.”

There are still a few years ahead of us in terms to get our oil prices to where they need to be.” 

Australia’s largest refiner, Shell, has a pipeline to export some of its oil to Europe. 

 “There’s no question about the ability of Shell to deliver oil to markets in Europe and the Middle East, but it’s going to take some time,” Shell CEO, Greg Brockman, said at a recent press conference. 

According to API, there are currently only 11 refineries operating in the world. 

The number of refineries is expected to rise to 12 by 2025. 

Shell is planning to expand its refining capacity by 3,000-5,000 barrels a day by 2025, while also boosting the number of ships capable of carrying crude oil to 7,000 a day. 

While the pipeline to Europe and Middle East is a major investment for Shell, the expansion plans are also going to push the industry to new locations. 

In 2017, Shell announced it would move its refinery operations to a new site in the state of Queensland. 

Australia also has a large number of small refineries, but these are all still only operating at a small scale. 

There are currently 3,300 refineries in the United States, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), but this number has been declining for the last few years due to lower oil prices. 

If the EIA’s estimates are correct, Australia will have fewer than 7,500 refineries by 2025 compared to 11,000 refineries now. 

It’s estimated that there are just under 1.4 million barrels of crude oil onshore in Australia, meaning Australia could be on track to be producing more oil than the United Kingdom. 

That would leave just under 8 million barrels onshore and a global market of about 3.2 million barrels. 

Oil producers have been ramping up production as the price of oil has been on a steep downward trend. 

By 2020, the EAA estimates the global market for crude oil will be around 1.6 million barrels per day.

The U.S. has a market of around 5.2 billion barrels per year, with Japan’s market of 6.7 billion barrels.

Australia’s oil industry is the world’s second-largest after the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and currently has a major presence in the Middle Eastern region. 

Brockman said that the industry was working on a plan to export oil to the Middle Kingdom, but declined to say when this might be. 

When it comes to climate, Australia is an “embassy of last resort” for oil. “

Australia has a very low emissions intensity per capita in terms with our population, but the oil sector is also contributing to climate change,” said McLean. 

When it comes to climate, Australia is an “embassy of last resort” for oil. 

Since 1980, Australia has made commitments to the Paris Agreement, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas pollution.

Australia has ratified the agreement, but has yet to ratify the agreement itself. 

To reduce emissions from its oil industry, Australia needs to drastically increase the number and quality of its refineries. 

Currently, Shell has just one refinery in the country.

While Shell is not going into direct production, the company plans to build an additional 1,000 rigs in the future. 

But, Shell will not be able to keep up with the rapid expansion of its own refinery capacity.

Shell estimates that it will need to increase its refinery capacity by 1,500 rigs in order to meet demand from the Middle-East and Asia.

The refinery that Shell plans to start building in the next few years is not the only one Shell plans on expanding in the near future
