Research Topics Presented

"Petroleum Engineers to the Rescue - Ammonia and Geothermal - New Energy Boom for Australia and Export "

by Andy Lukas, Executive Chairman, AJ Lucas Services Pty Ltd

Decarbonisation is proving not so simple, but petroleum engineers are coming to the rescue. We are using our skills for big carbon-free solutions in hydrogen and geothermal. A clear picture is evolving on how ammonia can make hydrogen a practical fuel and it’s here today. Japan and Korea are moving very quickly to embrace ammonia. Similarly, there are breakthroughs in geothermal, all requiring petroleum engineers’ expertise.


This paper gives examples of shovel-ready projects.
