Event description

Description

The French-Australian Chamber of Commerce is very pleased to invite you to an exclusive breakfast discussing the prospects and opportunities in the energy sector in Papau New Guinea on Friday 25 October.

PNG is a resource rich country on the cusp of a further wave of development. As the country considers the next phase of development, questions are being asked at community and government levels about the real benefit delivered to PNG from past projects. The new government has reopened discussions with the aim of delivering greater value to local stakeholders.

Alongside Ian Black, AGX Project Director at Oil Search Limited, our keynote speaker, who will provide insight into Oil Search’s upcoming resource projects as Australia’s largest corporate investor in PNG, our panel of experts will discuss the impact of those negotiations. These panellists will also share their experience in delivering past projects in PNG and their plans for national capacity building and inclusion for upcoming projects. Our panellists include Bryan Bailie, Executive General Manager Projects for Wafi-Golpu Joint Venture, Peter Cox, Vice President - Pipeline & Terminals at Worley, and John Walsh, Managing Director at Spiecapag Australia.

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