Unconventional Gas! Technical and
Commercial Aspects of CSG
Although much of the commercial activity and controversy over coal
seam gas (CSG) is in New South Wales and Queensland, Victoria has not
been left out of the debate. AIE Melbourne Branch, Minter Ellison and
Flagstaff Partners are pleased to bring clarity and balance to our
understanding of this topic.
Paul Bilston, Executive Director/Consultant
will dispel some of the confusion around the term ‘unconventional
gas’ and put ‘fracking’ in its place. This part of the
presentation will dig into the geology and engineering to build a
foundation for our discussion of the commercial aspects. Over his 18
years in the oil and gas sector, Paul has held senior technical
(engineering), commercial and management roles in unconventional gas in
Australia (AJ Lucas, AGL and GHD) and overseas. He is currently working
as Project Manager for a CSG exploration program in Gippsland.
Michel Mamet, Executive Director, Flagstaff Partners will focus on
the commercial and strategic aspects of the major Australian
CSG–LNG projects by reviewing their history, key sector
participants, economics, risks, competitive strengths of key players,
M&A activity and other factors of interest to equity markets and the
broader audience. He will also consider the implications for Victoria.
Michel has 14 years of experience in investment banking, advising across
the primarily energy related sectors.
