BIS Shrapnel forecasts that Australia’s resources sector will increase expenditure on maintenance work by 52 per cent over the next five years, to $A10bn. Adrian Hart of BIS says this will include both expenditure that has been deferred and spending on new assets. He adds that there could be some consolidation in the mining services sector as a result. The oil and gas sector is expected to account for the bulk of the increased expenditure on maintenance activity.
