Site Tour – ‘Innovation and Excellence’

Brought to you by the Government of South Australia

On this pre-conference site visit, delegates will have the opportunity to explore three very unique facilities in Adelaide. The tour will include:

  • Australia’s first Innovation District at Tonsley, which brings together research, businesses, government and the wider community to connect and collaborate. Created for creatives, Tonsley’s spaces and approach to life, work and play excite and embolden. This is where great ideas turn into reality.
  • The Onshore Petroleum Centre of Excellence (OPCE), a fully immersive simulated oil and gas training environment that provides specialist hands on oil and gas training in realistic simulation of upstream oil and gas operations. The OPCE has been established through partnership with TAFE SA and the state’s largest oil and gas producers Santos, Beach Energy and Senex Energy, and comprises operational upstream field production plant. The training options range from oil and gas fundamentals to the up-skilling of experienced field operators. The OPCE provides a low hazard, interactive training environment utilising operational upstream field plant and equipment.
  • The world-class South Australia Drill Core Reference Library, a state-of-the-art facility to foster discovery.

The tour will end with afternoon tea and networking at the Drill Core Library before being returned to the Adelaide Convention Centre.
