Australian Liquid Fuel Security Conference

overview

Informa Australian is delighted to be hosting the Australia Liquid Fuel Security Conference as a virtually delivered event on the 27th and 28th October via a live stream and interactive meeting rooms. With the heightened risk to Australia’s energy security, and the Liquid Fuel Security Review around the corner, this is a timely event for senior private sector executives and government officials.

As Australia looks to other countries to get oil, distance and reliability will be the biggest factors to secure a long-term solution that protects pricing and availability nationally.

Some of the key topics to be addressed will include:

  • Latest analysis of global petroleum reserves and trade flows
  • Liquid fuel trade risks in an uncertain global environment
  • Defence considerations for critical energy infrastructure
  • Transport fuels – current domestic demand, and changing consumption in the future
  • Consumer behavior and its impact on fuel demand going forward
  • Examining Australia’s latest exploration initiatives to develop new domestic oil reserves
  • Sectoral analysis of liquid fuel requirements – agriculture, transport, aviation, mining and others
  • The potential for the build out of new underground liquid fuel storage facilities at ports around Australia
  • The latest thinking in the design and construction of underground storage caverns
  • An examination of Australia’s domestic refinery capabilities and potential new requirements

In light of the ongoing situation with COVID-19, the Australian Liquid Fuel Security Conference will be delivered as a virtual event. You will still have access to the same great content, hear from leading experts, unique networking and business development opportunities with key decisions makers including the ability to directly ask questions and engage virtually all from the safety and comfort of your own home or workplace.

Rest assured, Informa is evolving & adapting with the times – and will be delivering premium content, networking and business development opportunities for Australia’s fuel and energy industry in the months ahead to ensure you can stay connected.
