APIA steers young professionals toward the Top End
Wed, 11 July 2012
The Northern Territory’s young engineering, finance and project management professionals have been urged by the Australian Pipeline Industry Association to seek long-term careers in the Top End, as it is an emerging energy hub, with involvement in both Asia and northern Australia’s expanding energy sectors.
Speaking before a young professionals event and a formal industry dinner in Darwin, Australian Pipeline Industry Association (APIA) Chief Executive Cheryl Cartwright said that Darwin is in a key position at an important time for energy industries, particularly the gas industry.
Ms Cartwright said “We now have a new and expanding LNG production centre across the harbour, there are emerging offshore oil and gas projects in our northern waters which will require Darwin as their base, and we have central Australia attracting new exploration and development impetus in oil, gas, pipeline and other energy infrastructure proposals.
“Darwin offers tremendous opportunities for young people in the energy industries, particularly the gas industry, and APIA provides access to information about those opportunities through its Young Pipeliners Forum.”
