This collaborative atmosphere, combined with the attendee’s high level of expertise, leads to complex and analytical interactions regarding longterm gas market forecasts, international natural gas demand, the influence of storage and infrastructure projects, electric/gas convergence issues, renewable energy developments, carbon tax, LNG technology, transportation and terminal updates.
