Organized by the Australia-Pacific Chapter, this event is a timely opportunity to hear from leading regulatory experts on the latest developments in the Australian offshore petroleum industry on decommissioning.

The Australian Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources released an enhanced offshore oil and gas decommissioning framework for review in December 2020 and is now considering input received from public consultation. The Department is expected to provide the final framework and an implementation plan to the relevant Minister for consideration in 2021.

The Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (APPEA) is the peak national body representing Australia’s oil and gas exploration and production industry.  APPEA has about 55 full member companies.  These include oil and gas explorers and producers active in Australia. Its members account for about 95 percent of Australia’s petroleum production.  It also represents about 70 associate member companies that provide a wide range of goods and services to the upstream oil and gas industry in Australia.  APPEA aims to secure regulatory and commercial conditions that enable member companies to operate safely, sustainably, and profitably.  It also seeks to increase community and government understanding of the upstream petroleum industry by publishing information about the sector’s activities and economic importance to the nation.

We look for to you joining us either in-person or virtually for you to hear speakers discuss the latest developments in decommissioning in the Australian offshore petroleum industry.
