The Australian Gas Technology Conference & Exhibition (AGT) announces its return in 2013 with a topical conference program and exhibition focusing on Australia’s lucrative $200 billion LNG industry.
Speaking at the recent launch event in Perth, AGT Conference Committee Chair Mark Stickells highlighted the significance of the event, given the rapid growth of Australia’s LNG industry and increasing global demand for LNG as a lower emission alternative to traditional fossil fuels.
Stickells, who is also Deputy Director of The University of Western Australia’s Energy and Minerals Institute emphasises that AGT is a tremendous platform to explore both the talent and significant opportunities that exist in Australia’s gas industry.
Launched by the organisers of the Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition & Conference (AOG), AGT attracted more than 3200 industry visitors at the inaugural event in 2012, winning the award for Best Trade Show Under 10,000m² at the Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) Awards for Excellence.
To be held at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from 1st July to 3rd July, this year’s event will include a packed two-day conference program exploring the theme of challenges, innovation and transformation in the Australian gas industry.
More than 100 exhibitors are also expected for the AGT Exhibition, which will focus on new products and innovations in gas processing and the construction and operation of LNG facilities, associated pipelines and exporting terminals.
The Australian Gas Innovation Awards will also recognise the innovators driving Australia’s gas industry. Entries for this year’s awards are now open, with the winners to be announced at the AGT Official Dinner on 2nd July.
