QLD | Queensland's LNG Industry: prospects and opportunities


Event ended.

Queensland’s LNG industry: prospects and opportunities – Monday 5 November

The French-Australian Chamber of Commerce is very pleased to invite you to an exclusive breakfast discussing the prospects and opportunities in the Queensland’s liquefied natural gas industry on Monday 5 November.

With Queensland’s $60bn LNG industry now firmly established, hear from the leaders of the three LNG operators: Rod Duke, CEO of GLNG Operations, Tony Nunan, Shell VP responsible for QGC and QCLNG, and Warwick King, CEO of APLNG.

Attendees at this exclusive breakfast will hear Rod, Tony and Warwick discuss what the future holds for these businesses as they continue to invest billions in their operations annually. The discussion will be wide-ranging, and include the opportunities that they see for companies in their supply chain as their industry matures, the shape of their ongoing annual investments to maintain production, examples of innovation that is driving future growth and investment, and the ever-changing dynamics of the markets they serve.

We expect this to be a very popular event, so recommend booking early to confirm seats for you and your colleagues.

Many thanks to our members, Spiecapag and Corrs Chambers Westgarth, for supporting this event.
