Melbourne Petroleum Club
The Melbourne Petroleum Club is a networking platform to facilitate dialogue and networking for the energy industry in Melbourne. MPC events are relatively informal events, usually bi-monthly lunches, attended by around 25- 35 local and visiting participants. There is a usually a speaker who will present an interesting topic for around 15 minutes (without slides). There are no dues or fees, other than the lunch costs. Regular lunches have been held for the past four years in the Melbourne CBD area.
Members include representatives of all the oil and gas companies in town (except the two largest ones – they refuse to attend and support the organization), law firms, accounting firms, financial institutions, operations and logistics companies, investment banking services, government representatives (both state and commonwealth) and independent consultants.
