Chevron Among Important Speakers at Subsea Conference
25 February 2010Petroleum company Chevron is set to outline its plans for the subsea developments of the giant Gorgon and Wheatstone projects during one of six topical seminars at the Subsea Australasia Conference in Perth from 24-25 March 2010.
A prominent line-up of speakers is taking part in Australia’s largest subsea event, which is expected to attract up to 450 delegates including local and overseas decision makers from the subsea industry.
A highlight of the two day conference program will be a half-day seminar co-ordinated by Subsea Energy Australia (SEA) and Subsea UK (SUK) which will explore the opportunities of upcoming subsea projects in Australasia, including the massive Gorgon and Wheatstone projects.
During this seminar session, leading oil and gas operator Chevron, engineering giant Clough and the newly formed Pipeline Repair Operators Forum (PROFA) will be invited to outline their plans for the region. Another program feature is a full day seminar on Geophysics and Geohazards, featuring presentations from twelve key industry leaders.
“Western Australia’s Department of Mines and Petroleum has estimated there will be more than $148 billion in project expenditure on WA gas related developments alone in the coming decade, so this half-day seminar will be of interest to all those with a vested interest in the future of Australia’s oil and gas industry,” said exhibition director, Bill Hare.
