CEO's Update September 2018
September has seen a changing of the management structure at Energy Pipelines CRC. With Future Fuels CRC now established, David has transferred to that entity as CEO and Klaas has been appointed its Research & Innovation Manager. I have been appointed to complete the activities of Energy Pipelines CRC and to finalise its reporting requirements to all stakeholders including the Commonwealth and our participants.
I am fortunate to have the continuing support of Matt, Fari and Lyndal in their respective roles. In addition, Darlene Maher has joined the Energy Pipelines CRC on a part time contract basis to assist with finance and administration tasks. Klaas will continue to provide support to the research and innovation activities.
There is much to be completed over the next 12 months. We are currently finalising the 2017-18 Annual Report to the Commonwealth, which contains a CRC Wind-up Plan and Exit Report. Over the next 7 months, we aim to finalise all current research projects (there are currently 23 CRC funded projects in progress) and disseminate the outcomes of those projects.
Additionally, we will be finishing the CCS RDD project by next March. The team will then be preparing our final reports to the Commonwealth, including the final Wind-up and Exit reports.
During the month, many of us attended the APGA Convention in Darwin. Congratulations to the team at APGA for organising an excellent event. Our stands were visited by a number of delegates over the two days (could it be because we were next to the GPA café?), and most showed keen interest in the activities of both CRCs.
Currently, 4 of our researchers are giving presentations at the IPC in Calgary. Jan Hayes has presented on two papers related to research program four projects whilst Valerie Linton, Ajit Godbole and Guillaume Michal are presenting on the activities of the CCS RDD project.
Our next research dissemination seminar will be held in Brisbane on Wednesday 7 November. More details on the topics to be covered are included in this newsletter. Given that it will be our final formal seminar, I recommend your attendance.
I look forward to continuing to work with you over the next 12 months (and to receiving your quarterly in kind reports).
All the best.
