This paper is aimed at Petroleum producers, refiners, importers, exporters, distributors, retailers, storage operators.
The Australian Government has decided to introduce a legislated mandatory reporting program for the petroleum sector from 1 January 2018. This would replace the existing voluntary reporting scheme used by the Department of the Environment and Energy to produce the Australian Petroleum Statistics (APS) Report, a monthly statistical report on activity in parts of the Australian petroleum industry.
The Department is seeking stakeholders’ views on the appropriate design and operation of the mandatory reporting programme. In particular, the four main questions asked in this paper are:
- Who should report? (section 3.3)
- What activities should be reported? (section 3.4)
- What product categories should be reported? (section 3.5)
- How and when should businesses report? (section 3.6)
For businesses interested in how mandatory reporting could apply to them, the key sections to review are sections 3.3 to 3.6.
These sections discuss who could be required to report, and what activities and products they would need to report on.
Stakeholders are encouraged to submit comments on this discussion paper by 28 October 2016.
Please send your response by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Public consultation sessions through October will allow stakeholders to discuss mandatory reporting and the issues presented in the paper.
Bookings to attend can be made through the Energy Security Office at email@example.com

- Melbourne 18 October 2016
- Sydney 20 October 2016
