Leading the way with organisation name change to reflect industry trends and innovation
Petroleum Club NT, an industry networking organisation previously focused on oil and gas businesses, has formally changed its name to Energy Club NT as voted by a meeting of members on 28 February 2018.
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 for the various sub-sectors in the energy industry and 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.” said Ms Harvey, Chief Executive Officer of Energy Club NT.
“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.” said Ms Harvey.
“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.” Ms Harvey went on to say.
“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.” she said.
The incorporation change has been approved to take effect from 28 March 2018.
Petroleum Club NT was established in 2015 and has been very successful engaging membership across a diverse demographic of stakeholders and businesses in the oil and gas industry. The organisation will continue to provide opportunities for networking, education and information sharing for the industry in Northern Territory bringing businesses together to support a sustainable energy future.
