PESA/SPE Vic/Tas July joint technical meeting

Wednesday, July 18, 2018 @ 12:00 - 14:00

Guest Speaker: Rhys Turner

Rhys Turner is currently a Director with the Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association (APPEA), Australia’s primary trade association representing over 60 oil and gas explorers and producers, who between them produce 98 per cent of all of Australia’s oil and gas.

Rhys and his Queensland team are responsible for all policy, communications, government affairs, and public outreach and advocacy activities on behalf of the Association’s Queensland membership.

Prior to joining APPEA in early 2017, Rhys held a variety of senior public and private sector roles, including serving as a Political Adviser and Chief of Staff to several Australian State and Federal Government Ministers. Between 2005 and 2007 Rhys served on the staff of then Prime Minister, the Hon. John Howard OM, AC.

Rhys’ private sector experience has seen him work in issue advocacy roles in highly-contested and regulated sectors, leading teams and take responsibility for policy development, campaign design and execution and external communications functions across the energy, resources, finance, agriculture, and gaming industries.

Rhys holds a Masters of Business Administration from Bond University and is a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors. Rhys currently serves on the Queensland Resources Ministerial Roundtable; Resources Ministerial Community Roundtable; and University of Queensland’s Centre for Coal Seam Gas Advisory Board.

We are aware that many people in the community who understand the benefits associated with having a thriving natural gas industry still feel like they are not equipped with the right information to share the positives of the industry’s story. Similarly, where people have concerns about the industry, in all likelihood they just simply do not have enough information about how natural gas is critical to their everyday lives.

It is in that context that the Made Possible by Gas initiative has been developed.

This communication program, which will run all year, is designed to better explain the versatile way in which natural gas is used to produce goods and services essential to everyday life.
