Mining and petroleum royalties are payments made to the owner of resources for the right to extract them. Because the state owns all petroleum and gas, and most minerals, resource permit holders generally pay royalties to the Office of State Revenue.
We administer royalties under the Mineral Resources Act 1989 and Petroleum and Gas (Production and Safety) Act 2004.

Royalty rulings set out the Commissioner’s interpretation of the laws that are administered. The rulings clarify how potentially ambiguous provisions will be applied. Rulings may also list which factors will be considered when making a decision, or the evidence required to establish a fact. Some of these rulings replace the royalty ministerial determinations.
