The 2020 Knowledge Forum program addressed the latest techniques and technology from specialised industry sectors, with sessions on marine renewable energy, non-destructive testing, automation and many more.
2020 hosts included The Society for Petroleum Engineers, AINDT, Engineers Australia and RINA. The Knowledge Forum will reflect the current trends and challenges impacting the wider oil and gas industry.
“SPE Western Australia are pleased to be involved with AOG again in 2020, and look forward to expanding our partnership with the event through our facilitation of a full-day Knowledge Forum this year”.

- "Explosion Guidelines: Are you following a guideline or a myth?" - Madhat Abdel-jawad, Director, Principal Engineer - Advanced Analysis Australia
Speakers will present case studies of accidents and incidents on how innovations and different approaches to safety are required. They will also discuss safety through challenging the notion that the environments we work in are in fact safe. Setting standards, more rigorous risk assessments and safety plans will also be hot topics in this session.
