Transforming the LNG industry

Transforming the LNG industry

Sep 21
CEDA welcomes former resources minister and prominent energy industry advocate, the Hon. Martin Ferguson AM, to share his views on how Australia's LNG sector can transform into a more competitive player globally.


The Hon. Martin Ferguson AM, Chairman of the Advisory Board, APPEA, Non-Executive Director, Seven Group Holdings, BG Group

Event overview

LNG had been touted as Western Australia’s next big industry, with four of Australia’s seven major gas projects currently under construction in this state: Gorgon, Wheatstone, Prelude and Ichthys. However energy prices have fallen in 2015 with predictions of supply outstripping demand for the next decade.

With WA’s projects sitting higher up the cost curve than competitors in the US and Canada, lowering the costs and maximising the efficiency and productivity of the LNG industry has become imperative.

A more flexible industrial relations framework is one of several factors that must be addressed. Join CEDA as Martin Ferguson outlines his pathway to reform to ensure the long-term competitiveness, profitability and sustainability of the LNG industry.
