According to the statement, Woodside Energy Executive Vice President Development, Meg O’Neill, and Chevron Australia Director of Operations, Kory Judd, will join Premier Mark McGowan for the opening address of the event.
O’Neill is responsible for the design and execution of onshore and offshore capital projects, the engineering function, Browse, Scarborough and Senegal. Judd, meanwhile, is responsible for overseeing safe and reliable operations of the Gorgon LNG, Wheatstone LNG, WA Oil and domestic gas assets.
This latest announcement comes as the free-to-attend conference program was finalised, which will include an Industry Supply Forum, Subsea Forum and Knowledge Forum, featuring experts across a range of industry sectors from machine learning to renewables, decarbonisation, diversity and technology.
The speakers and program will support the theme for AOG 2020 of ‘ForWArd Together – Driving Opportunity, Generating Confidence’. Central to this is theme is the presentations of Operator Forward Work Plans at the event, which is the next step in the WA Government’s LNG Jobs Taskforce vision.
AOG claims that it will hold ‘Operator Briefing Sessions’, which will provide attendees the opportunity to engage directly with the four operators presenting Forward Work Plans: Woodside Energy, Chevron Australia, Shell Australia and Santos.
This comes as AOG confirms a collaborative LNG Jobs Taskforce stand at the exhibition hosting Woodside, Chevron, Shell, Santos, Inpex and the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation.
In addition to this, the event will also include a technology station presented by the National Energy Resources Australia (NERA). This will demonstrate new technologies from entrepreneurs showcasing their innovative products and services in the fields of data and digitisation, automation and robotics, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
AOG Event Director Bill Hare said: “We are proud to welcome our keynote speakers who will open this year’s event, which is set to be 20% bigger than 2019. We have already sold more than 90% of the exhibition space and have had great support from both Government and industry.”
