APPEA: South Australia Boosts Oil and Gas Reputation

The South Australian budget will enhance the State’s attractiveness for onshore oil and gas investment.

APPEA Chief Operating Officer Western Region Stedman Ellis said the State‘s strong reputation amongst oil and gas companies had been boosted.

“The respected Fraser Institute Global Petroleum Survey consistently ranks South Australia as the most attractive Australian state for oil and gas investment and this budget builds on that already strong reputation,” Ellis said.

“The South Australian economy is set to benefit from the State Government’s commitment to new training opportunities and exploration incentives. The new Onshore Petroleum Centre of Excellence training facility at Tonsley is strongly supported by industry and will help develop and maintain the skilled workforce required here in South Australia and elsewhere.” he added.

“The deferral of royalty payments for shale and tight gas projects should help accelerate investment and job creation in what is potentially a significant new industry.” remarked Ellis.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
