Next meeting

Roundtable members are invited to attend the upcoming meeting of the Roundtable for Oil and Gas Projects in South Australia.

The format of the Roundtable has changed and this year it will commence with a networking breakfast planned to be addressed by the Minister for Energy and Mining, Hon Tom Koutsantonis MP.

A key theme for the Roundtable this year is the role of natural gas in the State’s energy transition. The preliminary program includes speakers like Tony Wood (Grattan Institute), Rick Wilkinson (EnergyQuest), Saul Kavonic (Credit Suisse), selected speakers from the SPE Asia Pacific Conference as well as representatives of companies exploring for energy resources, including oil and gas, natural hydrogen and carbon capture and storage opportunities.

The event will also be live streamed as per last year, but members are encouraged to attend in person and get full benefit from the many networking opportunities. Note that the venue has rigorous COVID-19 protocols in place. Members, whether in the room or attending virtually will be able to ask questions, provide feedback and input throughout the day via the app.

This year we will conclude the day with a commemoration event for our former Executive Director of Energy Resources, Barry Goldstein, who sadly passed away in July this year.
