Each year, the Australian Domestic Gas Outlook (ADGO) conference brings together the who’s who of the industry, for high-level discussions that will set out the future direction of the industry, to debate policy imperatives and discuss how commercial opportunities can be seized.
The conference gathers leading gas producers, pipeline operators, retailers, end-users, regulators and policy makers to have their say, and engage in the debate.
Now in its 8th year, the event has built a loyal following within the industry and is well known for its high calibre of speakers and timely, relevant content.
If you have products or solutions that can help senior executives from the length of the gas value chain navigate the current market climate or improve their operations, then the ADGO conference is your best opportunity to engage with a captive and targeted audience.

• The latest outlook from forecasting experts on the global LNG market and the likely impact on Australia’s domestic gas industry
• An expert breakdown of the domestic supply-demand balance, price trends and the impact on east coast manufacturing
• An overview of new basin prospects, what gas is likely to come online soon and debates on the best route to long-term gas security
• An understanding of the evolving infrastructure map of Australia - from expanding pipeline networks to the race for an LNG import terminal on the east coast
• The thinking of influential regulators and government leaders on their future policy aims, gas market reform - and the implications for companies along the value chain
• A brief on the technological trends in decarbonisation and hydrogen innovation that present future commercial opportunities for the gas industry

The audience is composed of senior industry executives and directors from along the domestic gas value chain as well as representatives from key stakeholders such as government and regulators.
Over its 7-year history the event has grown to over 350 participants.

“Gas is becoming a much more politically sensitive subject. The conference is an excellent way to exchange ideas, exchange them frankly, and contribute to thought leadership”
Antoon Boey, Executive General Manager of Corporate Development , Jemena” @ ADGO 2019
Australia’s domestic gas stakeholders are currently experiencing the most challenging market conditions in their history with a plethora of issues and challenges creating volatile markets.
Global market conditions, driven by the drop in the oil price are putting significant strain on any export linked projects, with the recently completed LNG export projects in QLD under particular pressure. However this is starkly contrasted by rising domestic prices as the increased demand for gas resources (particularly on the east coast) drives prices for domestic users (large and small) up. Large users in particular are struggling with the notable closure of the Remapak, and mothballing of a Dow Chemical facility, which heralds difficult times for Australian manufacturers reliant on gas.
These issues are further exacerbated by wildly varying state based gas policies, ranging from moratoriums to well-regulated production.
ADGO has established itself as the main announcement point for industry announcements from the public and private sectors.
