NEW EN­ERGY FOR RE­BRANDED CLUB

NT News - - BUSINESS - ASH­LEY MANICAROS

A LEAD­ING en­ergy net­work­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion has changed its name to bet­ter re­flect the broad­en­ing of the in­dus­try.

The Petroleum Club NT has changed its name to the En­ergy Club NT, re­flec­tive of en­ergy gen­er­a­tion be­yond fos­sil fu­els like oil and gas.

En­ergy Club NT chief ex­ec­u­tive So­nia Har­vey said the in­cor­po­ra­tion change took ef­fect late last month.

“Hy­dro­car­bons will con­tinue to play an im­por­tant role in en­ergy pro­duc­tion but the in­dus­try has showed a sig­nif­i­cant trend in adding al­ter­na­tive en­ergy sources to the mix,” she said.

“The ad­van­tage of in­te­grat­ing new tech­nolo­gies will also have a pos­i­tive ef­fect on re­duc­ing car­bon emis­sions, costs and cre­at­ing new and un­prece­dented op­por­tu­ni­ties.

“There is a clear move­ment in the in­dus­try for col­lab­o­ra­tion across the en­ergy sub-sec­tors which will con­tinue to be­come more preva­lent as we move to­wards our en­ergy fu­ture.

“Re­new­ables and oil and gas projects can co­ex­ist and pro­vide in­no­va­tive so­lu­tions across the in­dus­try.

“The ex­pan­sion for En­ergy Club NT also aligns with the North­ern Ter­ri­tory Gov­ern­ment’s 50 per cent Re­new­able En­ergy tar­get by 2030 open­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for in­vest­ment and busi­ness growth in the re­gion.

“We re­main com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing our ser­vices to the oil and gas sec­tor and look for­ward to wel­com­ing new mem­bers from al­ter­na­tive sub-sec­tors to our or­gan­i­sa­tion.”

The ex­pand­ing fo­cus on the en­ergy in­dus­try will pro­vide ed­u­ca­tion and in­for­ma­tion shar­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for busi­nesses with an in­ter­est in the North­ern Ter­ri­tory.

The Petroleum Club NT was es­tab­lished in 2015.
