    As Gladstone's 3 major oil and gas projects transition into operations and maintenance phase, it's interesting to see how this change will effect the local economy and businesses in the region. I was part of a delegation last week to travel to Gladstone to understand how local industry has positioned themselves for the changes ahead and what supporting industry organisations can do to assist. 

    Geoffery Cann, Deloitte National Director Oil and Gas, was invited to present to the Gladstone Engineering Alliance at an event dedicated to showcasing the supply chain capabilities of the membership.

    The essence of his remarks are that:

    • Australia has made a far reaching decision to support natural gas exports driven by demand from Asia.
    • The projects are moving into steady state operations
    • Our villain is the crude oil market that has taken a dramatic fall in price
    • The global LNG industry has been overturned in its wake
    • To survive and thrive, Gladstone needs to do three things. First, promote the interaction between its value chains (gas, coal, biomass, bauxite). Second, adopt technologies to help take out cost and improve productivity. Third, become factory-like in all aspects of work.
    • As only one in ten LNG projects will proceed, Gladstone has a large lead over other exporting cities and will be able to expand in the future.

    Geoffrey's FUEL UP blog provides some great insights into issues facing our industry and I highly recommend subscribing for weekly updates.

    We look forward to welcoming Geoffrey as a guest speak for PCNT in May following the International LNG18 Conference in to be held in Perth next month.

    PCNT were invited to join the NT delegation made up of various businesses showcasing some diverse capabilities and service offerings locally.

    This was a great opportunity for PCNT to build brand awareness to the greater industry and we had a lot of interest in membership, networking opportunities and our events here in Darwin.

    It was also great to continue to build some internal relationships with the other representatives of local businesses in the delegation and consider ways we can work together and collaborate in the future.

    Thank you to the Dept of Business for including us in this delegation and for sharing with us the opportunity to represent territory businesses.

    Entrepreneurs who have made billions on US shale and Queensland Coal seam gas are betting that the remote and little known Beetaloo Basin in the Northern Territory will be Australia's answer to the US unconventional gas phenomenon.

    American Energy Partners (AEP), headed by US shale pioneer Aubrey McClendon, and multibillion-dollar Texas-based private equity investor Energy & Minerals Group (EMG), are among those that have been lured to the Beetaloo within recent months by huge estimates for resources as well as pipelines and LNG plants that can deliver gas to buyers.

    That combination of favourable geology and multiple routes to customers, including the huge international LNG market as well as local mines and customers in southeast Australia, makes the opportunity in the Beetaloo area unique, players say.
