SA/NT Tech Talk: Would you know a good decision if you saw one?

Friday, April 29, 2022
1730 ACST
1930 ACST

Title: Would you know a good decision if you saw one?

Presenter: Emeritus Professor Steve Begg, University of Adelaide; and, Decisions, Decisions

Date: Friday 29th April

Time: 1730 (for 1815)

Registration: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_ARsn4xqKQQqZy0AdoFVUrA

Cost: Free (members). $10 - non-members

Abstract:

Making decisions is a key component of most technical and managerial jobs – the only bit of control an organization has over its future are its decisions (and their implementation), the rest is  up to nature, chance, decisions of others … all uncontrollable.  Like many other spheres, good decision-making abilities do not arise from “natural talent”, but from learning and developing a set of skills, honed by experience.  But most people have not been taught how to make good decisions in uncertain, complex or novel situations – or even what a good decision is.  This talk will introduce some key decision-making concepts (based on decision science) including the six dimensions of Decision Quality (DQ) that enable the user to make, and know they have made, a good decision (the only thing they can control) before they know the outcome.    The concepts are decision-agnostic, so equally applicable to personal decisions.

Bio:

Steve is an Emeritus Professor and former Head of School at the Australian School of Petroleum & Energy Resources (formerly ASP), University of Adelaide. His focus is on: tools and processes for decision-making under uncertainty; project/ asset and portfolio evaluations; and psychological factors in eliciting expert opinions. Steve’s prior roles include: Director for Decision Science and Strategic Planning with Landmark (a Halliburton company), a variety of senior roles for BP Alaska that spanned uncertainty in geological, engineering and economic models and Researcher and Project Manager with BP Research, where his focus was on uncertainty and variability modelling. He has twice been an SPE Distinguished Lecturer on uncertainty & decision-making topics. In 2014, he was elected to the Board of the Society of Decision Professionals (SDP). In 2016 he received the SPE’s top international award for the Management & Information discipline for his work on biases in decision-making. Steve is co-author, with Reidar Bratvold, of the book “Making Good Decisions”. He holds a PhD degree in Geophysics and a BSc degree in Geological Geophysics from Reading University in the UK and has taken executive education courses at MIT and U. Texas, Austin.

The business of the Annual General Meeting will be:

  • To confirm the minutes of the last preceding general meeting.
  • To receive from the Federal Executive reports on the activities of the Society during the last preceding financial year.
  • To receive and consider the financial accounts and audit reports that are required to be submitted to Members pursuant to the Constitution and to law.
  • To report the ballot results for the election of the new office holders for the Federal Executive.
  • To consider and if agreed approve changes and adopt the ASEG Constitution.
  • To confirm the appointment of financial auditors for 2022.

The AGM will commence with a scientific presentation from Dr. Taku Ide, Head of Carbon at Cleanaway Waste.

Title: The Role of the oil and gas industry towards a net zero future

Reducing, and ultimately reaching net-zero CO2 emissions from fossil fuels are critical to solving the climate challenge. 

Science shows that if we do not achieve net-zero CO2 emissions by 2050, many of the climate events we are witnessing – severe weather events, rising sea levels, ocean acidification and rising temperatures – will continue and likely accelerate, and negatively impact many of the world's key infrastructure, farming practices, and ecosystems that support the modern day economy. Worst impacts will tend to fall on those least responsible for the problem (IPCC 2018) who may not have the means to adapt to the changing world. These implications are motivating companies to reduce their emissions and position their portfolio of goods and services to a 1.5C aligned world. 

There are exciting roles that geophysicists can play in this transition, ranging from developing cost-effective methods to monitor efficacy of carbon capture and storage (CCS), identifying ideal sites for underground hydrogen (H2) storage, reducing uncertainties around rate of sea level rising, and studying other planetary bodies for habitability. 

The talk will share latest findings from climate science that are driving the shift towards decarbonisation, and explore emerging areas where geophysics expertise are critical.

Bio: Dr. Taku Ide holds a BS in Chemical Engineering, and a Masters and Ph.D in Petroleum Engineering, all from Stanford University. Upon graduating, he founded and ran a consulting firm specialised in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and associated risks for global firms, states, and Native American Tribes in the United States. He currently serves as the Head of Carbon at Cleanaway Waste Management to develop its carbon management strategy.
