THE Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association has elected to postpone its 2020 APPEA Conference in Perth due to Coronavirus concerns.

In a statement the Association said that:

“Due to recent events involving the COVID-19 Corona Virus, we regret to advise that our conference and exhibition scheduled for May 2020 is unavoidably postponed.

“Due to events involving the spread of the virus both domestically and overseas, we find ourselves in a situation whereby we are simply unable to proceed with the conference as scheduled.

“Whilst it may be necessary for us to cancel the event at some point, we are hopeful that this will not eventuate.

“We are very disappointed that we find ourselves in this situation and regret the inconvenience that has been caused by the extraordinary circumstances confronting everybody.

“We will be reaching out to individual members, suppliers and participants.”
