Canberra takes $8bn bath on Timor deal

Australia and East Timor will sign a treaty on the maritime boundary between the two nations in New York on March 7. The treaty is likely to change the revenue-sharing arrangement for oil and gas reserves in the Timor Sea from the current equal split to one that favours East Timor. This would reduce Australia’s revenue share from around $A20bn to $A12bn over the next 35 years. East Timor’s revenue share may increase further if LNG is processed at existing facilities in Darwin rather than in East Timor.
