Gas NZ Industry Forum - Wairakei 2011

Gas NZ Industry Forum - Wairakei 2011

In a first-time-ever move, the LPG Association, the Gas Association of New Zealand (GANZ) and the New Zealand Institution of Gas Engineers (NZIGE), are putting together a gas industry wide forum. The Gas New Zealand Industry Forum is designed to be relevant to, and appeal to, a much broader cross-section of gas industry participants.

The event will be held at Taupo’s Wairakei Resort on October 19-21. So keep those dates free!

Acting Minister of Energy, Hon Hekia Parata, will open this year’s Forum and will provide insight into the government’s view of energy for New Zealand and the role LPG and gas could play.

In addition, we have some exciting speakers lined up this year, including:
John Kidd – McDouall Stuart
Steve Bielby – Gas Industry Company
Ewan Gebbie – Energy Management Association of NZ
Mark Hermann – Gas Hub
Victoria Jull – Liquigas
Stephen Toplis – Bank of NZ
A presentation from Chapman Tripp on force majeure
A workshop on the new safety management system for network assets
A session on changes to gas related standards
And much more…

As well as the usual interesting mix of LPG and gas industry issues, the programme will provide time for the delivery of technical papers and workshops that will be of interest to both NZIGE members and others.

After dinner speaker

Ben Hurley (Star of hit TV3 show 7 Days) is set to impress as the after dinner speaker at this year’s Forum. Ben is the winner of two of New Zealand’s prestigious comedy awards - the Oddfellows Billy T award and the Fred Dagg award – and according to his profile he has a massive, yet likeable, stage presence that can win over the toughest of crowds. Should be a good night!
