  • contractors
  • government policymakers
  • professionals and advisors
  • employees new to the industry
  • members of the community seeking a basic understanding of the industry

Attendees gain an appreciation of the geological, technical, and economic aspects of the industry, features of the onshore and offshore environments, as well as the exploration, development, and production phases. The seminars offer an invaluable opportunity to understand the key characteristics and global context of Australia’s oil and gas industry and come to grips with its key concepts and terminology.

These seminars will be delivered online and facilitated by Curtin University’s Adjunct Professor Peter Moore or University of Adelaide’s Associate Professor Steve Mackie.
