The Roundtable for Oil and Gas in South Australia with broad-based industry and community membership was established with a focus on unconventional petroleum in 2010. The Roundtable was formed to enable stakeholder feedback and guidance for the advancement of oil and gas projects in South Australia. The Roundtable meets annually to share information about the latest developments in the upstream natural gas and oil sector, and agree priorities for action. This informs government actions to sustain energy security and jobs while protecting social and natural environments.

Since the Roundtable for Oil and Gas in South Australia last met in November 2019, the global COVID-19 pandemic and the collapse in oil price have impacted the local to global markets. The local oil and gas sector is responding to the recent oil price collapse as well as the energy market challenges in transition to emissions reduction, and increased competitiveness and use of renewables. Both oil and natural gas have critical roles in energy markets for decades to come.

2022 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 Sli.do 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.
