The Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association has warned that oil and exploration costs would rise under proposals put forward by One Nation leader Pauline Hanson. The Federal Government had agreed to a number of concessions in return for One Nation’s support for its company tax package, including changes to the Petroleum Resource Rent Tax and a gas reservation scheme in Western Australia. One Nation subsequently withdrew its support for the tax package, although LNG producers still anticipate some changes to the PRRT.
