DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - FRONT PAGE -

Petroleum Ex­plo­ration and Pro­duc­tion As­so­ci­a­tion of New Zealand (PEPANZ) Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Cameron Madg­wick says the host­ing of the New Zealand Petroleum Con­fer­ence in New Ply­mouth next year is a vote of con­fi­dence in both the re­gion and the in­dus­try.

“The Con­fer­ence has tra­di­tion­ally been held in Auck­land or Welling­ton, but now is the right time to bring the event to New Ply­mouth, which is at the heart of New Zealand’s oil and gas in­dus­try,” says Madg­wick. “While the lower oil price has meant ac­tiv­ity has been re­duced re­cently, next year’s Con­fer­ence pro­vides a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to not only high­light the fu­ture growth po­ten­tial of the in­dus­try in New Zealand, but also show off the fan­tas­tic re­gional sup­port the in­dus­try en­joys from the peo­ple of Taranaki as well as show off the best of Taranaki to the del­e­gates.

Madg­wick says the Con­fer­ence, which will be held at the TSB Show­place 21-23 March, will de­liver an ex­cit­ing pro­gramme and fea­ture in­dus­try lead­ers, in­ter­na­tional ex­perts, and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from a wide range of or­gan­i­sa­tions. Over 500 del­e­gates from across the coun­try and around the world are ex­pected to at­tend.

Al­ready con­firmed is a first key­note speaker is Pro­fes­sor Iain Stewart, Pro­fes­sor of Geo­science Com­mu­ni­ca­tion at Ply­mouth Univer­sity (UK) who has pre­sented a num­ber of sci­ence pro­grammes for the BBC, in­clud­ing last year’s hit se­ries Planet Oil.
