Another very successful Gas Speak Colloquium was held in Canberra 2-4 September 2019 with 30 attendees representing all sectors of the industry. The feedback from one participant sums up the event as follows “The overall experience is excellent as you are not only constantly learning and picking up presentation skills and techniques, but also meeting and networking with people in all of the industry sectors and improving and broadening knowledge of the gas industry”

With the assistance of Jemena as a sponsor, AGIT hosted the 6th and final meeting of the International Gas Union Transmission Committee for the 2015-2018 Triennium in Sydney, 20 – 22 March 2018.
The committee’s work is important to ensure that the technological, economic, environmental and societal impact of pipeline operations are recognised as part of and contributing to the safe production, transmission distribution and utilisation of gas.
This meeting aimed to finalise the Committee report to the IGU, organising the Transmission presentations at the World Gas Conference and determining the strategic topics and goals for the Committee’s work in the next triennium.
AGIT welcomed the approximately 30 international attendees to our beautiful harbour city. Australian members of the committee include Peter Harcus, General Manager Asset Strategy, Gas at Jemena and Steve Davies, CEO, Australian Pipelines & Gas Association.
