OG - Engineers Australia

QLD Group established in July 2010 & it`s still at it`s
infancy stage
Similar model to WA – in partnership with SPE and mainly
focus on Technical Events
Current 4 Committee members and hold 4 events
Focus on Facilities aspect of industry and multidisciplinary group that involve Process, Civil & Structural,
Electrical & Instruments, Mechanical & Pipeline
There are already 4 Association and Societies in this industry
Upstream Sector (Exploration & Production)
Upstream include searching for potential Underground or Underwater Oil & Gas
fields, drilling of exploratory wells, and subsequently operating the wells that recover
and bring these hydrocarbons to the surface
Midstream Sector
Midstream include Processing at Surface , Storage & Transporting these Hydrocarbons
to the Downstream Sector
Downstream Sector
Downstream include Refining and Distribution of Hydrocarbons and their products
and consist of Oil Refineries, Petrochemical Plants, Petroleum Product distribution,
Retail outlets and conventional/unconventional Gas distribution companies.
According to numbers by Pitcrew Management Consultants,
Australia now has a total of 456 projects in the construction
pipeline with 272 of those already committed and/or under
construction, with a combined value of $424b
Another 184 projects are in the pipeline awaiting Final
Investment Decision. Conservative estimations are that
approvals for at least $50-80b worth of additional project
value will be announced in the next 12 months.
