Eastern Australia Gas Supply Outlook
Venue: DLA Piper, Level 9, 480 Queen Street, Brisbane
Date: Wed 13 Jun 2018 @ 5:30pm, for 6:00pm start. Finish 7:15pm
Gas has long been viewed as a fuel that can transition us to a low carbon future. However, the market transformation which has seen the emergence of a major LNG export industry in Queensland has been far from smooth. For domestic customers, gas supply has become very tight. Many industrial customers have reported difficulty securing new supply contracts, with prices having risen sharply. Conventional gas fields that have been the mainstay of East Coast supply for the past fifty years are in decline. Where will new supply will come from? Restrictive state government policies and widespread public opposition to onshore gas developments add to the dilemma. Meanwhile, rapid advances in renewable energy technologies have brought into question the future role of gas in electricity generation. With all of this change on the horizon – the AIE is pleased to present an evening with Paul Balfe, Director of ACIL Allen Consulting and head of their gas practice.
Paul has worked for 40 years in the Australian energy and resources sectors, advising government and corporate sector clients on commercial and regulatory matters relating to the oil and gas industries including CSG, shale gas and other unconventional hydrocarbon sources, as well as alternative and renewable energy. He is a graduate of UQ with an Honours degree in Geology and an MBA. Please join us for an evening of discussion and networking with Paul.
