Introduction to the Oil & Gas Industry seminars

Online or Face-to-Face 13 April 2022 (8:30 am) AEST

Event Details

APPEA’s Introduction to the Oil & Gas Industry Seminars are back for 2022, in virtual and Face-to-Face format.

APPEA’s face-to-face seminars will be held in Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, and Canberra. More dates are to be released for the second half-year soon and will follow a one-day format.

We will also host two online seminars that will be conveniently split over two half days to maximize learning opportunities and to cater to 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.


8.30 am – 5.00 pm (local time in each city)

  • We currently do not have any Face-to-Face seminars scheduled. Please check back again soon.


AWST: 8.30am – 1.00pm |AEST: 10.30am – 3.00pm | ACST 10.00am – 2.30pm

Timings will remain the same for both days of the seminar and will include a short break. APPEA limits numbers for virtual sessions to allow a good presenter-student ratio for interaction, and student materials that are mailed out.
