SPE Workshop: Thriving in the Energy Transition by Stepping Up on Emissions Management 15 - 16 Sep 2020 Brisbane, Australia

Due to the ongoing global health concerns related to COVID-19 and following extensive consultation with the committee and industry, this workshop will be rescheduled to 15 – 16 September 2020 in Brisbane, Australia.

This decision has been reached whilst taking into consideration the public health concerns over the outbreak. In addition, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared COVID-19 a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC).

With these rescheduled dates, the abstract submission deadline will be extended to 30 June 2020. The Early Bird Registration Rate will also be extended to 14 August 2020.


As we stand on the threshold of the new decade, it is certain that the future will look very different from the past. In the last 10 years, Australia and the Asia Pacific region have focused on building a world-leading oil and gas industry based around multiple modern, technologically advanced upstream and LNG operations. However, despite much heralding as a greener, “bridging fuel”, LNG’s environmental credentials are now under massive scrutiny. Oil faces even more challenges and peak oil demand is being discussed openly by CEOs of major oil and gas companies. We are in the throes of an energy transition as our energy system is evolving rapidly and diversifying, decarbonising and decentralising.

Companies are facing intense and increasing investor scrutiny around environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors. Emissions, once the domain of the environmental engineers and sustainability and reporting groups, has become a boardroom and AGM topic, propelled by high-profile initiatives like the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosure and increased transparency around Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. Investor and customer pressure on companies to deliver cleaner, lower emissions energy is ramping up. Changing regulation compounds the situation, making management and reporting of emissions even more complex to manage.




This workshop is open to all and is targeted at a range of technical and management professionals across the oil and gas upstream, midstream, downstream and petrochemicals industries, technology/solution providers, service companies, energy investors, regulators, governmental departments/agencies as well as researchers and academia.
