Committed to Change: Driving True Industry Collaboration by Mike Lynn

A survey of Australian oil and gas operators and suppliers was undertaken to uncover the major barriers to and opportunities for collaboration. The findings were benchmarked against similar surveys undertaken by the Deloitte UK and Deloitte Netherlands member firms. From the results across the three regions, a model for operator and supplier collaboration was put forward, using the four components of ecosystem collaboration:

  • Purpose
  • Platform
  • Participants
  • Performance 

Decommissioning: The Next Wave of Oil and Gas
by Bernadette Cullinane

The Australian oil and gas industry is nearly 100 years old and many assets are reaching the end of their producing life. The industry must develop strategies to address the looming challenge of offshore decommissioning, however we have limited experience in this field. In building up decommissioning expertise within the Australian oil and gas industry we must consider:

  • Impacts to marine ecosystems and personnel safety
  • A scientific evidence base on which to base decision-making
  • Workforce and equipment capability
  • Policy and regulation
