    Jemena is hiring for its Northern Gas Pipeline Project. 

    For further information and to view the opportunities follow this link: www.ngpjobsandtraining.com.au

    Jemena has been working closely with communities and businesses along the proposed route from Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory to Mount Isa in Queensland to harness as much local Indigenous and local non-Indigenous participation as possible in the construction and operation of the pipeline.

    During the planning, construction, and commissioning phases, Jemena’s project will create jobs for locals and also hopes to staff ongoing operations and maintenance teams at both Tennant Creek and Mount Isa from local workforces.

    It’s customary at the dawn of a new year to make predictions you have no idea will come true. So what are my predictions at the dawn of 2017 for the world of digital oil and gas? This is tricky because it requires some predictions for oil and gas too. Here goes...

    • Oil Price - No material change
    • Biggest investment area
    • Biggest pay off
    • Hottest careers
    • Biggest let downs
    To read more about these predictions in detail and other great articles - head to the Digital Oil and Gas website for the latest blogs. The contributors to this blog work across the oil and gas industry, from exploration and production, to services and supply chain, in all kinds of digital areas.

    Drones (or autonomous equipment) should encounter a very receptive market in the oil and gas sector. Of all the digital technologies drones will deliver superior triple bottom line benefits. Moreover, it is in many oil and gas basins’ best interests to accelerate autonomy solutions. Here’s why. 

    WHY OIL AND GAS 

    The oil and gas sector is actually very well suited to exploring and adopting autonomous kit. 

    • The work can be dangerous – fumes and vapours from the product can asphyxiate or ignite
    • The work location is frequently remote and harsh, driving up the cost of housing human operators
    • Well trained human capital is now scarce because of the downsizing in the sector.
    • The sector is an avid consumer of the kinds of kit that autonomous favors – heavy lifters, haulers, movers.
    • The physical assets (plants, pipelines) are long life assets that require steady and often routine attention, making payback easier.
    • The work has lots of routine elements (heavy haulers trundling around mines, or engineers driving around to inspect facilities).
    • Environments where autonomous kit can be deployed are not shared with public use infrastructure (which takes way risks).

    With the support of key members pursuing the development of the NT’s onshore gas resources, APPEA has launched a new social media platform to promote the benefits the natural gas industry can deliver. The purpose is to a fact-based, evidence-led source of information about gas exploration and development in the Northern Territory.

    Gas4NT aims to ensure that public discussion of the oil and gas industry is based on information that is factual, complete and relevant to proposed development in the NT.

    CONSTRUCTION of the $800 million Northern Gas Pipeline is on track following the arrival of the first pipes, according to Jemena’s project director.

    The NGP will connect Tennant Creek to Mt Isa in Queensland. The first gas is expected to flow in 2018. The project is partly underwritten by the excess gas of PowerWater, and is expected to create 900 jobs.

    Jonathan Spink told NT Business Review this week’s arrival of 160km of pipe from overseas was within project timelines. The material will now be transported to Tennant Creek, where it will be stockpiled. Another three shipments will complete the 622km of pipe.

    “At this stage, we are planning to commence construction next year as planned,” Mr Spink said. “This will be subject to all necessary environmental approvals and land access being granted. It will also depend on the extent of the wet season.

    “This pipe will now be shipped to Tennant Creek by rail where we will store it until we are ready to build.”

    MONTHS of research and in-depth discussions with the oil and gas industry has helped shape a new look AOG Exhibition & Conference (AOG) 2017 which will be staged in the Western Australian capital of Perth next February.

    Taking into account the significant changes that have occurred in the oil and gas sector on the back of depressed commodity prices, AOG organiser Diversified Communications undertook unprecedented discussions with key industry participants following the staging of AOG 2016 earlier this year.

    Alongside the feedback on subjects such as the future direction of the industry and what event activities participants and attendees are looking for, Diversified also received a powerful vote of support from key stakeholders within industry and government.

    “This has been a remarkable opportunity for us to hear first-hand from those working at the coal face about where they believe the local oil and gas sector is heading in the short term and what they value most from major events like AOG,” AOG Event Director at Diversified Communications, Bill Hare, said.

    ENGINEERS AUSTRALIA: Opinion piece by Geoffrey Cann, National Director, Oil and Gas, Deloitte...

    Darwin is fast becoming a world class hub for the hydrocarbon industry. What is the opportunity for engineering-oriented local business to participate in the success of the sector?

    Darwin will soon be home to a sizeable investment in sophisticated new plant. The completion of the INPEX Ichthys project, the existing Darwin LNG plant, the launch of the Shell Prelude shore base operations, and the construction of the Northern Gas Pipeline herald a future of gas development, gas processing, supply operations and liquefaction. This creates plenty of scope for a variety of technically strong businesses to provide services to the sector.

    There is plenty of growth potential too, as it is typically less costly to expand these facilities than to build new ones. These plants will also run for many decades, creating sustainable businesses....
