Australia is a country with an abundance of energy resources, including oil, gas and coal, yet it still faces energy security concerns, relating both to security of supply and security of demand, particularly within the Asia/Pacific Region. This seminar will provide an overview of the energy resources of Australia, as well as an analysis of the energy security issues that Australia faces in 2014 and beyond.
