Energy trade

Australia is a net exporter of energy, including coal and natural gas, with net exports equal to around two-thirds of production. Australia also produces and exports large volumes of uranium oxide.

Most of Australia’s energy imports are of refined petroleum products and crude oil. Domestic refineries imported three-quarters of their feedstock in 2016–17, while over half of refined product consumption in Australia was met by imports.
