Each year in the Territory we see plenty of opportunity and innovation for operators, contractors and all companies associated with the energy industry. It’s an exciting time to be in the Territory to witness the diverse transformation that this period of development will bring and to support the growth and sustainability of the NT energy industry.
From March 2018 it's exciting to confirm our official name change to Energy Club NT.
The change will open the remit for the organisation to add alternative energy to the mix and continue to focus on delivering a premium networking platform. The expanding focus on the energy industry will provide education and information sharing opportunities for businesses with an interest in the Northern Territory.
Hydrocarbons will continue to play an important role in energy production, but the industry has showed a significant trend in adding alternative energy sources to the mix. The advantage of integrating new technologies will also have a positive effect on reducing carbon emissions, costs and creating new and unprecedented opportunities.
There is a clear movement in the industry for collaboration across the energy sub-sectors which will continue to become more prevalent as we move towards our energy future.
Renewables and oil and gas projects can coexist and provide innovative solutions across the industry. The expansion for Energy Club NT also aligns with the Norther Territory Government’s 50% Renewable Energy target by 2030 opening opportunities for investment and business growth in the region.
We remain committed to delivering our services to the oil and gas sector and look forward to welcoming new members from alternative sub-sectors to our organisation.
I look forward to continuing to work with the Board to implement our strategy, engage our members and recognise our sponsors for their contribution to our success. I’m optimistic about the long-term future of the energy sector in NT, and the Club’s commitment to support our members across the region.
As Founder and CEO of Petroleum Club NT, now Energy Club NT, I’m committed to the delivery of our vision, mission and values – everyday, with every decision.
