Bronwyn has over 30 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry as both a geologist and in management. She has worked across the sector starting out with Comalco Exploration (now part of Rio Tinto), Wiltshire Geological Services, Origin Energy, Beach Energy, Santos Ltd, and later as a consultant for InGauge Energy.
Her experience includes precompetitive digital log data creation and management, operations geology, conventional and unconventional oil and gas exploration and development, and government and stakeholder engagement. Bronwyn is the current Federal President of the Petroleum Exploration Society of Australia (PESA).
Bronwyn gained her PhD in Engineering Science in 2010, which focussed on using numerical modelling methods to predict the occurrence of naturally fractured shale rock to apply to seal risk; and maintains interest in this area having supervised various post-graduate projects and application of the techniques in unconventional gas resources.
She has now turned her attention to the minerals industry and has taken a position with the Geological Survey of SA as A/Director. This exciting opportunity allows her to work with a great team of experienced and highly skilled geoscientists and data engineers to deliver high quality precompetitive data sets and industry advice across the mineral exploration sector in South Australia, with a specific focus on delivering the Critical Minerals Project and Strategy for South Australia.
