Collaboration Forum

Tackle issues facing the oil and gas industry such as new horizons, future jobs, new energies and emerging technologies while enhancing collaboration between operators, contractors and the supply chain.

Partnering with Woodside, Chevron, Deloitte, NERA and the Government of Western Australia Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation, the Collaboration Forum focuses on enhancing collaboration between operators, contractors and the supply chain to drive a greater understanding of challenges and access to opportunities.

Our committee have developed a program encompassing the future of oil and gas, new technologies and emerging markets.






Wednesday 13 March

The 2019 Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition & Conference (AOG) will be officially opened by the Western Australia Government and will feature keynote presentations from Woodside Energy and Chevron Australia.

With confidence rising in the oil and gas industry new players, new projects and new production techniques are being brought to the fore. This session will examine the diverse range of opportunities that will define the Australian oil and gas industry in 2019 and beyond.

With the oil and gas industry currently going through rapid and radical changes related to new market requirements, the introduction of new technologies, increased digitalisation and the retirement of many experienced workers, there has been a significant industry, government and academic focus on identifying the workforce of the future. This session seeks to identify new long-term job opportunities focused on servicing, maintaining and improving existing oil and gas operations and will include a presentation from the Western Australian Government’s LNG Jobs Taskforce.

Thursday 14 March

In just over a decade, and after capital investment of more than US$200 billion, the Australian Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry is now the world-leader in LNG production.

Where will the industry head next?

This session will consider the macro and micro-economic outlook for the Australian oil and gas sector for 2019 and beyond. What could the future hold and what trends and impacts should we expect?

The Australian natural gas industry is not just about LNG. Many new applications, uses and customers for natural gas are emerging.

This session will discuss the multifaceted opportunities that these new applications and markets could create and the value that could be unlocked.

The drive towards a low-carbon future – catalysed by the Paris Agreement, and coupled with a series of socio-economic and technological trends – is leading many in the oil and gas industry to fundamentally reimagine what the energy company of the future looks like. This session will investigate how WA-based oil and gas producers are embracing that future, be it by utilising renewables in LNG processing or by taking steps to become part of the evolving hydrogen economy.

Friday 15 March

New sensor technologies, 3D printing, and other cutting-edge technologies are driving innovation, lowering costs and increasing efficiency in the oil and gas industry. The first of two sessions will connect oil and gas businesses with university and research organisations who are solving complex problems through the prism of business collaboration.

Automation and next-generation data science present apparent production and efficiency benefits, however, these technologies also come with advantages in safety by removing workers from dangerous environments where they are asked to perform dull jobs. In the second of two sessions, delegates will hear about the latest technologies that are driving innovation directly from market leaders such as IBM.
