Leaders representing their governments and the international energy community will come together later this year to tackle key challenges and examine the role for gas in the future energy mix.
The Gastech 2012 Conference Programme will highlight the major issues that are defining what has been termed the ‘Golden Age for Gas’, with key technical and commercial sessions.
Led by the most influential business leaders and engineering experts from across the supply chain, the presentations will focus on a range of topics that impact the direction the industry is headed.
Japan, the world’s largest consumer of liquefied natural gas (LNG), features prominently this year, with special papers examining the impacts that last year’s tsunami had both commercially and technically on the Japanese gas industry. The Japan Gas Association fly to London to deliver a case study on the Sendai LNG terminal – damaged by the tsunami – plus Gastech will welcome papers reviewing the global impact Japan’s decision to step down its nuclear programme will have on the supply and demand of gas. One highlight paper will be delivered by the Tokyo Gas Company, who will present their vision and predictions for the global gas market outlook in 2020.
