Event Details

We are excited to announce that APPEA’s Introduction to the Oil & Gas Industry Seminars are now available online.

Our online seminars will be conveniently split over two half days to maximise learning opportunities and to cater for all time zones across Australia. APPEA’s introductory series gives a broad understanding of the Australian oil and gas industry and is ideal for:

  • contractors
  • government policymakers
  • professionals and advisors
  • employees new to the industry
  • members of the community seeking a basic understanding of the industry

Attendees gain an appreciation of the geological, technical, and economic aspects of the industry, features of the onshore and offshore environments, as well as the exploration, development and production phases. The seminars offer an invaluable opportunity to understand the key characteristics and global context of Australia’s oil and gas industry and come to grips with its key concepts and terminology.

These seminars will be delivered online and facilitated by Curtin University’s Adjunct Professor Peter Moore or University of Adelaide’s Associate Professor Steve Mackie.
