Australian Petroleum Statistics

This monthly publication collects national and state statistical information on sales of petroleum products, exports and imports of petroleum products and crude oil, production of crude oil and condensate, refinery input and output, and stocks of petroleum products.

The Department of the Environment and Energy has been making improvements to the Australian Petroleum Statistics (APS) to improve the accuracy, coherence and usefulness of the statistics. This includes addressing known under-coverage problems affecting a number of the statistical series in the APS. Through the enrolment of additional data providers into the survey, reference to other official data collected for regulatory purposes and the application of robust statistical estimation techniques, revised estimates have been compiled for a number of the series. This lays the foundation for a range of future initiatives that will focus on the continuous improvement of the APS.

All of the improvements have been made in response to stakeholder/user concerns, many of whom have supported the process and provided continuous feedback during the development and implementation.
