This Conference was an exciting opportunity for members of the WA’s community, business and government sectors to consider forward planning issues in regard to the world’s oil reserves being depleted in the next decade (see a graphical representation of this expected event).

Available below are two background papers on the ‘oil rollover’ issue written by STC members Bruce Robinson (a) and Brian Fleay (b):

  • (a) Oil Vulnerability Background Paper (Doc-495k)
