Australia’s largest oil and gas event has joined forces with the Federal and Western Australian Governments to launch a new initiative to showcase the country’s oil and gas industry suppliers.


The Australasian Oil & Gas Exhibition & Conference (AOG) today announced the launch of the Australian Industry Zone, a new exhibition zone that will provide a platform for Australia’s oil and gas manufacturers and service companies to display their latest technology and services at AOG 2014.


Supported by the Australian and Western Australian Governments, the new zone will herald the technological breakthroughs taking place in Australia’s oil and gas supply industry, including the lucrative $200 billion LNG market.


“Project developers and operators no longer have to look overseas to find solutions for their technical challenges and productivity improvements,” said Paul Johnson, the Australian Government’s Energy Supplier Advocate. “Australia has a vibrant sector of small to medium sized suppliers that are bringing new ideas to market in response to industry needs.”


“The Australian Industry Zone is one of the ways we are supporting these suppliers to showcase their capability and grow their business. It will allow project decision makers to interact with Australian firms in one convenient location on the main exhibition floor.”


The Australian Industry Zone is one of a number of new features to be announced for AOG 2014, which is happening at Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre from 19-21 February.


Registration opened today for the award-winning petroleum industry event, which will bring together more than 500 exhibitors from across 20 countries, including the US, UK, China, Norway, Scotland, Singapore, Holland, Italy, France and Belgium.


AOG 2014 will also see the merging of the AOG Conference and the Subsea Australasia Conference in a move designed to enhance the delegate experience, providing more content and a greater range of topical conference sessions.


The AOG Conference will include streams focusing on Australian industry participation, productivity, resourcing, safety, marine logistics, operations and maintenance, as well as special sessions exploring subsea topics such as Subsea Technology, Pipelines, Oceans & Sediments, Field Development challenges and Floating LNG.


“The new conference format will connect professionals with a greater range of experts sharing their knowledge and expertise than ever before,” said Bill Hare, AOG Event Director.


AOG 2014 will also welcome the next generation of oil and gas leaders on 21 February for the AOG Graduate Careers Day, giving tertiary students a chance to meet with leading employers and hear about the career opportunities, graduate programs and vacation work on offer in Australia’s growing oil and gas industry.
