The event will be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre and will be free of charge.
According to the statement, the three-day event will cover a range of topics centred around a 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 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.
AOG Event Director Bill Hare said: “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.”
According to the statement, the exhibition will include over 250 companies, and will provide a great opportunity for policymakers, operators and service providers to meet, network and debate the future roles for natural gas and oil. Hare said that, for the first time this year, AOG would emphasise a targeted focus on drilling and completions featuring both technical presentations and a dedicated exhibition zone.
Hare added: “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.
“Last year the conference and exhibition attracted more than 8000 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.”
