The Oil and Gas industry has become a driving force in takeover activity in Western Australia recently with $10 billion AUS of mergers and acquisitions taking place in the past 12 months.

Doubts exist surrounding the durability of the resources sector in the region, mainly due to the scrapping of major iron ore projects. However these high levels of investment within the oil and gas sector act as a clear indication of the long term interest for resource producers. But what is driving this investment?

Oil and Gas Fields

Home of the Gorgon, Browse LNG Precinct and Wheatstone projects, Western Australia has become a focal point of the Oil and Gas industry. Major operators are keen to be involved in the large oil and gas fields in the region so they can participate in the development of any future projects and are investing an estimated $2 billion AUS in petroleum exploration every year.

Companies in the exploration stage are also recruiting for Geologists and Drilling Engineers.
