Perth will again host the region’s biggest annual outlook event for the oil and gas sector in March at the 38th Australasian Oil and Gas (AOG) Exhibition & Conference.
The three-day Exhibition and Conference will cover a range of topics centred around the theme ‘An Energy Shift’, highlighting changing trends in the industry such as the rising confidence of the oil and gas market; effective transitioning of projects from construction to operations and maintenance; new uses for liquefied natural gas (LNG); and new energy.
The conference program includes updates and insights from Woodside Energy, Chevron Australia, NERA, Deloitte and Scottish Development International and the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation.
“The industry has had a tough few years; however, a recovery in global oil prices, Australia’s world dominance of LNG exports and a resurgence in investment in the sector have set the scene for a vibrant program across all three forums,” said AOG Event Director Bill Hare.
“Last year the conference and exhibition attracted more than 8,000 oil and gas leaders, policymakers, experts, innovators and educators from 45 countries – including official delegations from Norway, Scotland, Belgium, Malaysia, Poland and the UK. We are expecting to again host many delegations from leading global oil and gas producing regions in 2019, and this provides a unique opportunity to liaise with these influential decision-makers.
The vast AOG exhibition space will showcase more than 250 companies and provides a unique opportunity for policymakers, operators and service providers to meet, network and debate the future roles for natural gas and oil.
Mr Hare said for the first time in 2019, AOG would emphasise a targeted focus on drilling and completions featuring both technical presentations and a dedicated exhibition zone.
“This exciting space has been added due to interest from past visitors and will feature the latest products, technology and services in drilling and well completion from Halliburton and the Society of Petroleum Engineers to name a few,” continued Mr Hare.
The AOG Exhibition & Conference – which is supported by Federal and WA State Government, the City of Perth and the local oil and gas industry – is considered one of the leading events on the global oil and gas calendar.
