We understand current market realities and the forces that are expected to shape Australia’s energy and resource future. We focus purely on Australian energy and resource industry value chains, in their global context, leveraging three decades of experience.

Organisation Structure

Our organisation has been carefully designed to ensure effective governance, leadership and management and a sharp focus on our clients and the markets that influence their success.

Advisory Council

An Advisory Council provides independent oversight of strategy, governance and planning.

Management Team

Our management team balances leadership, management and detailed execution capability, augmented by technical expertise which we access through the Energy & Resource Forum.


Core regularly enters into short to longer term alliances and business associate relationships to provide access to specific competencies, through innovative partnerships. Core Energy & Resources operates a collaborative network of energy professionals through an entity known as the Energy Forum. The Forum is made up of technical and commercial specialists who are engaged as required to complement the central team resources of Core. This ensures Core is well placed, at all times, to meet the total requirements of all client engagements. See Energy Forum.
