The 51st Annual Convention of the Australian Pipelines and Gas Association (APGA) will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre from 12 to 15 October 2019 and will cover a range of issues in the theme: Infrastructure for the Future.

APGA’s Annual Convention brings together participants from all sectors of the pipeline industry as well as other industries associated with natural gas and the transportation of energy, slurry and water. This major annual industry event provides a wealth of information in the business sessions, and the social events allow for extensive networking opportunities. The Australian pipeline industry is respected worldwide and APGA’s broad membership base provides knowledge and information to transfer to the next generation of experts.

The business sessions will include papers covering pipeline operations, project updates, training, research, environmental challenges and safety issues. Issues surrounding gas policy and gas markets are increasingly topical, generating much interest and debate about the role of the transmission sector and the challenges of gas supply for the domestic market.
