CEO's Update October 2017

Click here to download the October 2017 edition of the Energy Pipelines CRC Newsletter

October is one of the busiest months in the Energy Pipelines CRC calendar. Between the finalising of the Annual Report of the 2016-2017 financial year, preparing for upcoming events and continuing to highlight the value of industry led research, the team in Wollongong and myself in Melbourne, have had a productive and rewarding month.

The highlight for this month has been the APGA Convention held this year in Cairns. With two presentations based on Energy Pipelines CRC research and a well-equipped trade stand, the Energy Pipelines CRC had a strong presence at this year’s Convention.

APGA members expressed a genuine interest in research outcomes and in being more involved with research. I thoroughly enjoy meeting with the broad Australian and international pipeline community at the convention and look forward to attending next year in Darwin.

You will see in this newsletter the 2nd part of a report by Cornelis Van Niekerk and Fari Mahdavi on the recent APGA YPF site visit of the Northern Gas Pipeline. This was a unique opportunity for the APGA YPF and I hope you enjoy reading about their experiences as I have.

I attended an APGA YPF event in Melbourne which examined the future of energy with talks from both David Vaughan (Jemena) and consultant Ted Metcalfe. It was pleasing to see the future leaders of our industry take such an interest in the challenges and opportunities both short and long term for the industry.

In a few weeks we will be holding our 16th APGA RSC/Energy Pipelines CRC Research Dissemination Seminar in Melbourne.

I look forward to each of our seminars as they bring together a broad cross section of our participants to discuss recent research outcomes and provide an opportunity for networking between attendees. You will find a copy of the program in this newsletter and I strongly encourage all those available to attend.

In late October we received the exciting news that the first stage of the Future Fuels CRC bid application had been accepted by the Commonwealth and has been invited to proceed to the second round of the applications process.

I would like to thank the entire Future Fuels CRC bid team for their unrelenting efforts in developing this key visionary initiative, as well as all our partners to help us shape the core research programs and generate a bid in which the Commonwealth sees great potential.
