This workshop will provide young professionals in the energy industry the opportunity to meet and learn from industry leaders in an intimate setting. Workshop attendees are able to participate in key conference highlights of Day One, i.e. the opening, keynote, and executive plenary sessions; followed by an exclusive “Lunch with Industry Leaders” session where attendees are able to engage and network with regional leaders over a casual lunch.
Andrew Horabin’s “Bullshift” programme kick-starts the second part of the workshop as attendees explore “how to get more honesty and straight talk at work” and enhance their soft skills through practical, fun and interactive learning sessions. Following this is an exclusive panel session with invited industry leaders who will share career development insights and engage with workshop attendees through stimulating Q&A discussions. A networking session caps the programme as workshop attendees come together with fellow industry professionals at the APOGCE Welcome Reception.
Clearly, catching the next wave of resource development will not be achieved by â€œbusiness as usualâ€ approaches. Success will require more collaboration, more integration, innovative solutions, a competitive cost structure and rigorous application of hard won lessons from recent projects. We must maintain our social license to operate by, continuing to improve our personal and process safety results, maintaining the highest environmental standards and ensure all stakeholders understand the vital economic contribution our industry provides.
Fortunately, our region is blessed with an abundance of natural resources and there is growing demand for our products. Also, we have a reputation for overcoming obstacles and a successful record of delivering affordable, reliable energy to our customers. It is clear that we have the talent, the skills, the experience and the opportunities to overcome todayâ€™s unique challenges and continue to contribute to the growth and prosperity of our region.
For the SPE 2016 Executive Plenary Session, we have invited several leaders of our industry to explore these issues with to conference members. Please plan to join us for what promises to be a lively and informative plenary session.

As we have seen with the advent of the shale oil revolution in the United States, the development of new technology plays an important role in the oil and gas industry. It is an enabler in reducing capital costs, simplifying production and increasing capacity of new or existing facilities. It can make a marginal project into a profitable development.
Progressing technology, while dealing with significant risk, is a challenge that can be overcome through a technology qualification process. A Technology Qualification Programme (TQP) provides a means to identifying the risks and taking the correct steps to mitigate it; not avoid it.
This lecture summarises the required steps involved in qualifying technology and how to keep track of technology development through the Technology Readiness Level (TRL) ranking system. In addition, some of the pitfalls in executing a TQP programme are identified and discussed with emphasis on both component and system testing. Examples are given to illustrate the danger in taking shortcuts when executing the qualification plan.
Data from a recent subsea separation qualification programme is presented comparing test results between CFDs, model fluid and actual crude testing at operating conditions. Knowing the limitations of the tools and testing system selected is an important step in closing the gaps identified in the TQP programme.
The TRL has evolved at a faster pace and has become more acceptable in the oil and gas industry than the TQP. Nonetheless, continued standardisation of both the TQL and TRL is still necessary in order to reduce overall cost of developing technology and allow faster implementation.

Effective management of well, facility, and pipeline integrity over an assetâ€™s life is an ongoing, expensive and technically complex activity that seeks to manage risks to as low as reasonably practicable. Risks can never be fully eliminated but are managed to an acceptable level.
When the cost and risk of maintaining and remediating the integrity of an asset is greater than the reward to be gained by the remaining production, life-end is usually imminent. Life-end of an asset usually results in the loss of recoverable hydrocarbons and expensive decommissioning and rehabilitation. To prevent these impacts, it is sometimes preferable to ensure that assets continue to economically produce for as long as possible by undertaking good asset integrity management practices and implementing technologies that can extend the life of assets.
In this session, industry leaders will discuss asset integrity management and life extension including the disciplines and methodologies involved and how decisions are made to strike the appropriate balance of expenditure versus risk to maximise the value of an asset.

The regulatory environment is a factor that is taken into account by an increase or decrease on return on project investment â€“ higher regulatory risk usually demands an increase in financial return up to a point where no investment will be made because of a lack in regulatory stability.
A regulatory environment where expectations are simple to understand, clear and consistent will assist in the ability of an oil and gas project to achieve sanction. However, the ability to achieve sanction will also be enhanced if there is confidence that the regulatory environment will experience minimal change over the life of the investment through exploration, development, production and ultimately decommissioning.
Stable regulation is important in supporting a sustainable industry by setting consistent and stable standards for all stakeholders to manage their businessess effectively.
In this panel session, leaders within the upstream oil and gas industry, their service providers and government regulatory agencies, will provide insight and stimulate discussion on what are important characteristics of good regulation.
