Though significantly bolstered by one industry giant’s presence in South Australia, oil and gas remains a key sector for the state making up 41.8 per cent of the 2023 SA Business Index’s total value.

The industry also trumps the second most valuable sector – financial services – by nearly 30 per cent.

In total, companies in the industry fell 80 spots cumulatively, with one company in particular suffering a 27-ranking tumble. Others on the list in the sector fell by 16, 19 and 18 spots.
