Scholarships for World Gas Conference in Washington DC


The Australian Gas Industry Trust (AGIT) is offering up to five scholarships to be part of the Australian delegation attending the 27th World Gas Conference (WGC18) in Washington DC from June 25-29.

Participants under the age of 40 in the Australian gas industry are invited to attend.

Hosted every three years by the International Gas Union (IGU), WGC2018 will be the world’s largest gas conference. Over 500 speakers will talk in 100 sessions under the theme “Fuelling the Future” and will include major figures in the gas world such as producers, buyers, governments, international agencies and NGOs.

Commenting, AGIT Chairman Dr Graeme Bethune said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for younger people in the Australian industry to attend what is unquestionably the Olympics of the global gas industry”.

AGIT aims to contribute to the advancement of study, education and research in the gas industry and related fields and to recognise and support excellence in those fields. Attendance will enhance delegates’ careers through the opportunity to benefit from the knowledge, information, promotion, dialogue and networking amongst the 12,000 event delegates.

Candidates are encouraged to apply from a cross section of the gas industry including technical, admin, commercial, financial, HR, trade and other areas.
AGIT will contribute to the cost of registration and economy travel, accommodation and all reasonable incidental expenses. Employer contribution will improve the chance of selection.

Applications close on 31 January 2018. For more information on the conference program go to: Visit for more information or contact Peter Heffernan (AGIT Secretary) on (02) 6273 0577 or email
