overview

Important announcement – The Australian Liquid Fuel Security Conference is being rescheduled to October 2020

Due to concerns regarding the spread of COVID19, and implications for corporate travel and meeting restrictions, Informa has taken the decision to reschedule the Australian Liquid Fuel Security Conference from the 23-24 March, to the new dates of 27-28 October 2020.

The venue for the rescheduled Australian Liquid Fuel Security Conference will remain the same – The Hyatt Hotel, Canberra.

We look forward to welcoming you to what will be a fantastic meeting place for the Australian energy and infrastructure industries on the 27-28 October in Canberra.

 

Informa is delighted to announce the inaugural Australian Liquid Fuel Security Conference, which will be held on 27-28 October 2020 at the Hyatt Hotel, Canberra. 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
