GL Noble Denton, the global independent technical advisor to the oil and gas industry, will poll hundreds of industry professionals on current issues affecting the Asian gas market during the World Gas Conference, June 4-8, 2012.
As home to some of the major producers and consumers of natural gas, the region is increasingly becoming a focus of interest for the international energy industry. Despite its potential as an engine for global growth, however, Asia is not without its challenges.
GL Noble Denton will be conducting three Industry Snapshot Polls during the conference in order to gain clear insight into the issues facing the gas industry in Asia. Conference attendees are invited to the company’s stand (1208) to take part in the poll, which will ask them to vote on one key issue per day:
• Will China become the world’s largest producer of shale gas by 2030?
• Will Japan decrease its dependence on LNG in the next decade?
• Does Asia have the infrastructure to support growth in gas consumption?
Participants will be invited to vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to these questions, using their business cards as ballot slips. The results of each day’s question will be announced the following morning, before voting on a new issue begins. The poll will also completed online by senior professionals from across the industry.
Richard Bailey, GL Noble Denton’s Executive Vice President for Asia Pacific, said: “Energy consumption has grown exponentially in Asia over recent years, and the region faces the increasingly challenging task of fuelling a continued growth in demand quickly, safely and efficiently.
“GL Noble Denton’s Industry Snapshot Polls will explore oil and gas professionals’ valued opinions on some of the key obstacles and opportunities associated with Asia’s race to meet tomorrow’s consumption rates. We’re looking forward to welcoming conference attendees to our stand to have their say on these important issues.”
