APPEA picks its top 160!

30 September 2019

APPEA congratulates the 160+ authors and presenters who were recently accepted to deliver their original work at the APPEA 2020 Conference and Exhibition.

Each year the APPEA Conference highlights key industry developments and findings at a national and international level as well as defining and overcoming the issues and challenges facing upstream petroleum exploration and development.

A call for papers was issued to the industry in June this year, for oil & gas professionals to share their technical and business insights to drive ideas, overcome challenges and share innovative discoveries. Over 230 papers were submitted for consideration, of which just 166 were successful in making the program for the Associations’ flagship event.

“The quality & diversity of papers submitted for APPEA 2020 has been outstanding. The rigorous peer-reviewed vetting process, whilst makes competition for a position in the program fierce, ensures the integrity of the program for which APPEA is renowned. The successful applicants are to be congratulated.”
Dr Steve Mackie Chair, APPEA Technical Program Committee

Oral and poster presentations in the streams of geoscience, engineering and business will comprise the APPEA 2020 technical and business program, that will complement the keynote addresses over the three-day event. With the criteria of the presentations being original work and not having been presented at any other event previously, the APPEA Conference  always delivers a dynamic program.

Ultimately all submitted papers will be published in The APPEA Journal. Published by CSIRO, the APPEA Journal is recognised in the upstream oil and gas industry as Australia’s leading peer-reviewed publication for information on geoscience, engineering and management. Eligible delegates will receive full access to the APPEA Journal as part of their conference registration, and anyone can purchase individual papers from the journal which dates back to 1961.

The full APPEA 2020 Conference program will be released in December 2019 on the conference website and presenter details & abstracts will be available in May 2020 to registered delegates via the APPEA 2020 mobile app.
