There has been a noticeable upturn in the oil and gas sector and as a result a list of new and innovative activities that will be part of a very full week at for the Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition & Conference (AOG 2018) in Perth next March.

While AOG is more than three decades old, the event’s organisers have continued to ensure that it remains fresh and relevant at a time when the oil and gas sector is going through a time of major change. Significantly, a number of the innovative new events to be staged at AOG 2018 are being driven by the event’s sponsors and key partners such as Woodside and National Energy Resources Australia (NERA).

NERA, for example, has been instrumental in developing the NERA Technology and Skills Hub and the NERA SME ConnectER.

To be run for the first time at AOG 2018, the NERA Technology and Skills Hub will provide a dynamic, interactive forum featuring technology demonstrations, skills insights and presentations from thought leaders and practitioners.

Meanwhile, the SME ConnectER will be a facilitated process to connect established SMEs that have innovative products or services and a genuine value proposition to champions from LNG operators and contractors.

Other new additions to AOG 2018 include the AOG Festival, a networking and entertainment event featuring pop-up food vendors, bars and entertainment that will provide the ideal place for attendees, presenters and exhibitors to wind down after a full day of activities throughout AOG 2018.

To be held in the Summer Garden at the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre, the inaugural AOG Festival will be staged from 5 pm on Wednesday, 14 March.

Another new addition for 2018 is the Asset Integrity Zone, which will be located on the exhibition floor. Supported by the Australian Institute for Non-Destructive Testing (AINDT), this zone will showcase specialist technology, training and services for non-destructive testing and condition monitoring applications for the oil and gas industry including risk-based inspection, structural health monitoring, vibration analysis, infrared thermography, corrosion resistance and tank inspection.

With the Australian oil and gas industry moving into a lengthy period of large-scale project management, this is certain to be a popular addition to the AOG program.

Registration is now open for AOG 2018, which is to be staged at the Perth Convention & Exhibition Centre, 14–16 March.
