The 2024 Australian Energy Producers Conference (20 - 23 May 2024) is the flagship annual gathering for the oil and gas industry with Australian and global leaders of the industry gathering to focus and discuss important issues.  Under the theme, ‘Delivering the new energy economy’, key figures across industry, government and energy users and geopolitics came together to advance the sector’s central role in establishing the ‘new normal’ aligned with net zero, sharing experiences and insights on the major challenges and opportunities for the industry.

2. Gated Pre-Startup Safety Review Process
3. Consultation and training for frontline workers in developing Safe Operating Procedures using Usability Mapping
4. Methodical risk assessments completed by the operations team to review associated risks and controls prior to each new activity being performed
