Speaking at QGCE, Queensland’s Energy Minister, Mark McArdle and other key industry figures from associations including the Queensland Petroleum Exploration Association identified issues such as a lack of experienced, skilled workers in the industry and the potential for a gas shortage if gas demand for export supply and demand for domestic gas supply is not addressed.
Day two of the conference will see a variety of speakers from organisations such as the Gasfields Land and Water Commission and Energy Skills Queensland discuss the strategies needed to implement some of the critical changes the industry needs, including labour management and environmental issues as well as advising on financing and cost-effective project development strategies.
Over 80 exhibitors are showcasing the latest products and services at the free exhibition, with a mix of established CSG suppliers alongside others looking to secure a foothold in the rapidly emerging sector.
“QGCE is obviously a great opportunity for companies that have been trying to find a way to do business in this sector,” said David McCarthy, Exhibition Manager.Article continues below…
“Some of the most difficult things for companies can be simply finding out who’s who, where the projects are, what stages they’re at and how that effects the need for their products and services. QGCE gives companies a platform to easily address these questions at the exhibition,” said Mr McCarthy.
Day two of the conference is held on 12th September at Brisbane Convention Centre and tickets are still available for all delegates interested in finding out more about the Queensland gas industry.
