With the global oil and gas sector at crossroads due to commodity price uncertainty, key international industry events such as the annual APPEA Conference have never been so important.
Themed ‘Competing for Growth’, APPEA will be staged in the Queensland capital of Brisbane from 5-8 June 2016.
The conference will be a significant celebration of the major strides Australia has made towards becoming a leading liquefied natural gas (LNG) producing country. Queensland is now home to three coal seam gas (CSG) to LNG projects, and a major player in the international LNG sector.
“The best companies use hardship as a catalyst for innovation and forming new partnerships and the APPEA Conference provides a special opportunity for networking, doing business, sharing ideas and learning about new technologies and case studies that point the way forward,” said APPEA chairman, Bruce Lake.
The opening plenary session will feature addresses from the Queensland and Australian governments, highlighting their important role in facilitating a positive investment and regulatory environment for growth.
Rounding out the opening session, APPEA chairman Bruce Lake will outline the current state of the Australian industry, the key issues it faces, and the actions APPEA is pursuing to support the industry.
“One of the key aspects of these events are the concurrent business and technology sessions,” Lake said. “They help to better inform industry members and to point to new opportunities and new directions.”
Over three days in June at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, the business and technology sessions will present talks on issues such as implications of the Paris climate change summit, energy policy, the international LNG outlook and project development.
“In all, there will be more than 100 plenary and concurrent session presentations - an outstanding program shaped to be relevant to industry plans, needs and concerns in tough times,” Lake added.
