phase and the next round of oil and gas developments which are currently being progressed towards commercialisation.
AOG 2018 will also include lively discussion on what is happening in the gas sector, with critical concerns being raised about a lack of sufficient production to meet demand, while at the same time governments from around the country are closing down large areas to unconventional exploration and production.
Bill Hare, Event Director for AOG 2018 organiser Diversified Communications, said the oil and gas world will again be making its way to Perth next March for what will be a critical event,
“As well as the strong local involvement in both the Exhibition and Conference, we are again expecting to host a number of significant country delegations from the leading oil and gas producing regions,” Mr Hare said.
“I have recently returned from attending some major petroleum events in the northern Hemisphere and the feedback was very positive about AOG 2017 with many noting they are looking forward to returning in 2018.”
Alongside the world-class AOG 2018 exhibition, event organisers will again be running a series of free conferences and a number of exciting networking events.
The inaugural “free” industry forums held at AOG 2017 were a tremendous hit with both attendees and participants and Diversified Communications has again elected to hold the Collaboration, Subsea and Knowledge forums on the exhibition floor at AOG 2018.
Mr Hare said approximately 2000 people attended the free conferences in 2017 and organisers are expecting an even bigger turnout next year.
Also to be staged within the Expo Halls will be a number of popular industry zones covering Subsea; Health, Safety & Environment; Instrumentation Control & Automation; and a “new” Asset Integrity Zone.
Networking a big part of AOG 2018
