Oil giants Chevron, Santos and Statoil are pursuing plans to explore one of the world’s largest potential oil resources in the Great Australian Bight. With a trillion dollar potential the exploitation of the Bight could be a game changer for the South Australian economy. What are the benefits for business and government? How do SA companies offer their products and services? How do we exploit this potential resource for the benefit of the community? What are the risks?

The Australian School of Petroleum (ASP) at The University of Adelaide is a world-class centre for petroleum education, training and research.

APPEA represents Australia’s oil and gas exploration and production industry. Its member companies account for an estimated 98 per cent of Australia’s petroleum production.
