Bright Sparks guest star at NT ‘Back to Business’ energy event
The Energy Club NT is holding its ‘Back to Business’ event today in Sandbar, Darwin, an annual gathering to discuss the future of the energy and resources sectors. Now in its fifth year, the 2021 event will feature a special presentation by Minister for Industry and Northern Australia Nicole Manison.
Brighter has sponsored the event since 2019, and Bright Sparks alumna and Energy Club NT members, Rob Smart and Cassy Schmidt, will also be putting in appearances to share their stories working in the Australian energy sector. Bright Sparks is a Brighter project that casts a light on the unique stories of extraordinary people working in or around the Australian gas industry — through Bright Sparks, we’ve profiled everyone from engineers and scientists to CEOs and students.
Rob, a business development manager who offers site skills training in the LNG industry, and Cassy, an environmental scientist, are two great examples of the industry talent working in the NT today, and we are proud to see them represented.
The natural gas industry plays an important role in the Northern Territory. According to estimates from Deloitte, the industry could contribute $17 billion to the economy over the next 20 years, and as many as 4,000–6,000 jobs with the optimal settings in place.
Energy Club NT CEO Sonia Harvey stated last year that the gas industry within the Northern Territory has the potential to become a “global hub”. Gas companies working in the region, such as Inpex and ConocoPhillips, are key employers for the local communities in which they operate, and highly prospective regions such as the Beetaloo Basin, are also ensuring the Top End remains an attractive proposition for industry growth.
