2016 marks a unique and pivotal year for our region, as several mega projects transition to operations and others complete construction. Also, frontier exploration is underway in several Asia Pacific basins, technology enabled developments (FLNG) are progressing and unconventional opportunities are being unlocked. In recognition of this critical and dynamic period, our conference theme is “Catching the Next Wave – Delivering Affordable Energy."
Securing future investment, for projects at any scale, will require us to apply lessons from the recent past and respond to emerging technical, regulatory and societal challenges. Keynote speeches, panel discussions and technical papers are targeted to deliver insights to address these challenges, as we build the foundation for future success.
With a string of world class Australian LNG projects making the transition from the construction to operational phase, it was timely that process control and automation technology again featured highly at the annual Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition and Conference (AOG) staged in Perth from the 24th to the 26th of February, 2016.
Celebrating its 35th year, AOG 2016 featured a theme of “Collaboration” with over 100 experts from leading companies providing input on how industry, government and other key stakeholders should continue to work closely together to reduce costs and improve productivity.
