Welcome To TOD ANZ  

Posted by Big Gav

The Oil Drum announced a few changes recently - as part of this TOD ANZ has moved home - Welcome To TOD ANZ.

As part of the recent changes announced at The Oil Drum, the regional satellite sites such as TOD ANZ have been closed, bringing to an end an interesting 3 year period.

As a result, we are shifting operations from the main TOD site to a Blogger hosted environment and looking to expand the contributor base and provide a more regular stream of information than has been the case in recent months.

We'll still be accessible via the original URL (anz.theoildrum.com) as well as the new one (todanz.blogspot.com). Old content will remain available as well, with a "best of" set of links being added to the sidebar in the near future.

The initial group of contributors are :

aeldric - David Clarke has worked as a consultant analyst for almost 30 years, spending the last 15 years consulting mainly in IT. David has owned and sold an IT startup, but now prefers the pampered life of a manager in the corporate world. He has close friends in the energy industry and blames them for introducing him to Peak Oil, and bursting his happy bubble.

Big Gav - Gav studied Engineering at the University of Western Australia in Perth. Since then he has travelled widely and worked in the oil and gas, power generation, defence, technology and banking industries. He has been blogging about peak oil since 2004 at Peak Energy (Australia) and is probably the most prolific example of a techno-optimist in the peak oil world.

Phil Hart - Phil studied Materials Engineering at Monash University in Melbourne before spending five years with Shell UK Exploration and Production. He worked on two new North Sea oil and gas field development projects before joining the Brent field maintenance team as a corrosion engineer. In late 2006, Phil returned to Melbourne and is an active member of the Australian Association for the Study of Peak Oil. He has provided briefings to local government, fund managers and other businesses and presented on the issue at community events and local oil industry forums.

SP - SP has been a long time reader and part time contributor or commentator to Energy Bulletin and TOD-ANZ. He frequently annoys Gav by posting items of possible interest for Peak Energy. SP is an environmental scientist (of sorts) who recently completed his PhD: his ignorance now comes with qualifications. After a brief flirtation with doomer nihilism, he now tries to entertain a more hopeful and optimistic outlook - mostly. SP currently resides somewhere on the Indonesian Archipelago.
