New oil and gas link with Australia

A brand new event linking key energy hubs in Scotland and Australia will take place in Aberdeen this month.


The inaugural Aberdeen-Perth, WA Gateway will be hosted by Granite PR and held in association with the Australasian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference, and The Government of Western Australia.


It will take place at Aberdeen’s Macdonald Norwood Hall Hotel on Tuesday, December 6, and feature keynote speaker John Atkins, agent general for the Government of Western Australia’s European Office. In addition, there will be a line-up of leading presenters, including:


Aberdeen City Council

Aberdeenshire Council

Australasian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference

Bank of Scotland

City of Perth


Subsea UK


Building on the success of the now well-established annual Aberdeen-Houston Gateway and Aberdeen-Norway Gateway, this new event will offer a platform for knowledge sharing and networking between two leading energy hubs. It is also hoped that it will act as a springboard to further strengthen the links between the locations, as well as facilitating additional opportunities between participating businesses.


As the capital city of Western Australia, Perth is consistently ranked by the Economic Intelligence Unit as one of the top 10 most liveable cities in the world.


Commenting on plans for the inaugural Aberdeen-Perth, WA Gateway, event creator and Granite PR managing director, Brett Jackson, said: “Aberdeen and Perth are both founding members of the World Energy Cities Partnership (WECP) and both are globally recognised as international energy capitals.


“The synergies which exist between these locations offer an exciting opportunity to explore in depth the opportunities which exist for those seeking to broaden their corporate horizons.”


The Aberdeen-Perth, WA Gateway is supported by Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council, Australasian Oil and Gas Exhibition and Conference, Bank of Scotland, Emirates, Energy Voice, Macdonald Hotels and Resorts, The Press and Journal, QuEnScH, SDI, Subsea UK, and The Government of Western Australia.
