IN­DUS­TRY SHOW­CASE

The Australian Energy Review - - FRONT PAGE -

Some of the big­gest names in the global petroleum in­dus­try will be shar­ing their views on the state of the re­bound­ing sec­tor when Aus­tralia’s largest oil and gas event, the Aus­tralasian Oil & Gas Ex­hi­bi­tion & Con­fer­ence (AOG 2018), opens its doors in Perth this month.

REP­RE­SEN­TA­TIVES from lead­ing oil and gas pro­duc­ers are be­ing joined by some of the big­gest ser­vice and sup­ply com­pa­nies and par­tic­i­pants from academia, in­dus­try bod­ies and govern­ment from around the world to pro­vide three days of unique in­sights and the un­veil­ing of ex­cit­ing new tech­nolo­gies at AOG 2018.

The con­fer­ence will fea­ture three, free-to-at­tend fo­rums - ti­tled Col­lab­o­ra­tion, Knowl­edge and Sub­sea — which will be staged in pur­pose — de­signed the­atres within the Perth Con­ven­tion and Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre ex­hi­bi­tion halls from 14-16 March.

The fo­rums will fea­ture pre­sen­ta­tions from spokes­peo­ple from global and lo­cal oil and gas com­pa­nies such a such as Chevron, Shell, Wood­side and Quad­rant; and lead­ing in­ter­na­tional ser­vice and sup­ply providers such as Baker Hughes, Deloitte, DNV, Hal­libur­ton, In­tec­sea, Mon­adelp­hous, Sub­sea 7, Tech­nip FMC, Wood Group and Wood Macken­zie, along with ex­perts from key in­dus­try, academia and govern­ment bod­ies.

The Col­lab­o­ra­tion Fo­rum was one of the ma­jor at­trac­tions at AOG 2017 – and the con­tent for this year’s event will be sculp­tured by a com­mit­tee com­prised of rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Shell, Chevron, Wood­side, Deloitte, NERA and the Govern­ment of Western Aus­tralia.

A new ad­di­tion to the AOG 2018 cal­en­dar is the AOG Fes­ti­val, a free-to-at­tend net­work­ing and en­ter­tain­ment zone fea­tur­ing pop-up food ven­dors, bars and en­ter­tain­ment, while the Sub­sea Wel­come Drinks will again kick-off pro­ceed­ings.

In­dus­try in­sid­ers and those want­ing to join the sec­tor, will also be able to hear and see first-hand what is hap­pen­ing in an Aus­tralian oil and gas in­dus­try that is re­bound­ing from the re­cent in­dus­try down­turn at the spe­cial­ist “Zone” ar­eas on the Ex­hi­bi­tion floor.

The al­ways popular Sub­sea; Health, Safety and En­vi­ron­ment; and In­stru­men­tal Con­trol and Au­to­ma­tion zones will be joined by the new As­set In­tegrity Zone at this years’ event.

Other ex­cit­ing new ad­di­tions to the AOG pro­gramme this year are the NERA Tech­nol­ogy and Skills Hub — a dy­namic, in­ter­ac­tive fo­rum fea­tur­ing tech­nol­ogy demon­stra­tions, skills in­sights and pre­sen­ta­tions from thought lead­ers and prac­ti­tion­ers — and the NERA SME Con­necter, a fa­cil­i­tated process that will con­nect es­tab­lished SMES that have in­no­va­tive prod­ucts or ser­vices with cham­pi­ons from LNG oper­a­tors and con­trac­tors.

At the same time com­pa­nies and govern­ment groups from around the globe will be show­ing off their wares and un­veil­ing the lat­est tech­nolo­gies and ideas when the AOG Ex­hi­bi­tion is staged for the 37th time.
