  • The Deputy Prime Minister and the Energy Minister and the Treasurer and I have just concluded meetings with the three largest gas companies in Australia, the three largest gas exporters from the east coast of Australia. That’s Origin, Santos and Shell. And they have given us a guarantee that they will offer to the domestic market the gas that was identified as the expected demand shortfall, by AEMO, in 2018.

  • A seawater pumped hydro project in South Australia’s Spencer Gulf could generate 225 megawatt (MW) of electricity, an initial feasibility study released by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) has found. The study represents an important milestone in the project. It will allow Energy Australia to proceed  to the next stage of planning.

  • Ours is an ambitious plan – we have already committed to building 54 ships in Australian shipyards, approving 30 of them in the past year alone – including future submarines, future frigates, offshore patrol vessels and new pacific patrol boats for our region.

  • The safety and security of Australia and our interests around the globe has been significantly strengthened with the commissioning of the first Australian-built Air Warfare Destroyer, HMAS Hobart, today.

  • What a great day for the Navy and a great day for Australia. Commissioning HMAS Hobart, the most capable modern warfighting ship of the Royal Australian Navy.
