In late 2019, members of the OFFshore Hub attended the Resources Technology Showcase (RTS2019) at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. This international event brought together executives from the fields of hard rock mining and oil and gas in order to discuss how technology is reshaping their operations.
This unprecedented gathering of mining and energy executives provided insight into how artificial intelligence, augmented reality, data analytics and autonomous transport which will change the industry in the near future. In addition, public policy experts, academics, senior public servants, industry regulators and influential politicians from WA and Australia were in attendance.
Spanning two days, the showcase included keynote speakers, panel discussions and an Innovation Showcase. Keynote speaker Zoe Yujnovich, Chairman of Shell Australia, cited the OFFshore ITRH as a positive example of how collaborative research could be used to improve offshore safety – in this case through the provision of an improved understanding of the seas around the Prelude FLNG facility off northern WA.
