On Thursday 23 October, SACOME members enjoyed a descriptive presentation on Shale gas exploration and development from Santos Pty Ltd.
Colin Cruickshank (General Manager Development Execution, Eastern Australia Business Unit) reviewed the prospectivity for Shale gas in Australia. He explained how Santos goes about exploring and developing their operations by giving an overview of well construction technology and their hydraulic fracture stimulation processes.
Matthew Doman (Manager, Public Affairs) addressed the increasing public discussion over the development of Australia's gas resources. He also explained that as the industry enters new communities a real effort is required to establish a genuine, responsive dialogue.
A special thankyou to Santos Pty Ltd for allowing both presenters to speak.
