Dedicated to exploring the latest gas industry innovations and addressing key issues affecting the natural gas industry, the Queensland Gas Conference and Exhibition was held on 11–12 September 2012 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The Queensland Gas Conference and Exhibition (QGCE) formed part of Queensland Energy and Exploration Week, and was co-located with Energy Skills Queensland’s annual conference, and Petroleum Exploration Society of Australia’s Fourth Eastern Australasian Basins Symposium and Exhibition.

The combined events brought together approximately 1,500 attendees, including energy market executives, governmental and regulatory body representatives and decision makers from the LNG industry and its supporting infrastructure.

The two-day conference program included presentations from Queensland Energy and Water Minister Mark McArdle, who provided delegates with a clear overview of the new Liberal National Party Government’s approach to supporting a sustainable CSG industry; ConocoPhillips’ Charles Uselmann, speaking about the Australia Pacific LNG Project; and CSIRO’s Dr Luke Connell, who shed light on the improved viability of enhanced CSG recovery.

QGCE Exhibition Manager David McCarthy said that the conference catered to the fast-growing industry by generating discussion around key areas, including commercial, economic, political and technological issues.

The QGCE exhibition hosted 85 exhibiting companies, presenting a comprehensive display of the latest developments, products and technologies from a wide range of companies.

QGCE will return to the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre in 2013. For more information about QGCE visit www.queenslandgasconference.com.au
