Shell to provide major Prelude update at AOG

Major updates on the ground-breaking Prelude FLNG project will again be a keen topic of discussion when the Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition and Conference (AOG) 2016 is staged in Perth next February.

AOG 2016 organisers have confirmed that two afternoon sessions offering a first-hand update on Prelude will provide some of the key content for the first day of the conference on Wednesday 24 February.

Prelude is just one of a range of popular topics that will returning for the 35th staging of AOG, with next year’s conference program also set to feature a number of new streams and a significantly updated format.

AOG Event Director Bill Hare said that industry feedback has played an important role in determining the content and scheduling for the AOG 2016 Conference.

“We received a lot of very good feedback from AOG 2015 attendees and have followed that up with some informative discussions with key industry decision makers and this has provided us with a great base to build what we believe will be a very innovative and informative conference program for 2016,” Mr Hare said.

The 2016 AOG Conference has a theme of “collaboration” and that is strongly reflected in the content over the two days, with a great deal of input provided through the event’s close relationships with a number of leading companies and industry and government organisations.

Collaboration is the keystone of Royal Dutch Shell’s involvement in AOG 2016, where it will be providing the latest information on Prelude and Australian involvement.

“Shell Australia looks forward to attending the oil and gas conference, AOG, in 2016. Supporting Australian businesses is at the heart of what we are trying to achieve at Shell and will be vital to support Prelude Operations,” said GM of Production for Shell Australia, David Bird.

Mr Hare said that with the oil and gas sector going through a difficult period, events such as AOG provide a critical conduit for those wanting to hear the latest news on developments, such as Prelude.

“There is no doubt that the service and supply sector is going through tough times at the moment thanks to continuing low crude oil prices. However, we believe that well credentialed events such as AOG - which features up-to-date and informative content - will provide significant benefit for those that attend,” Mr Hare said.
