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 at Gastech 2012, to be held October 8-11, 2012, in London.

The Gastech 2012 Conference Program will highlight the major issues 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 impacting 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 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 program will have on the supply and demand of gas. One highlight paper will be delivered by the Tokyo Gas Company, which will present their vision and predictions for the global gas market outlook in 2020.

Gastech also focuses on the impacts low prices in North America are having on gas monetization, and one key debate will be the role of LNG versus GTL (gas-to-liquids), as producers of gas seek new, more diverse revenue avenues, other than their traditional power generation customers.

“This year’s program reflects the incredible pace of change afoot in the global gas community, as consumption of LNG continues to grow; Asia drives demand post-Fukushima; shale resources in China, Argentina and Eastern Europe are developed; and credit squeezes continue to impact infrastructure and project developments,” said Gavin Sutcliffe, head of content for Gastech.

New for Gastech 2012 is the LNG for Transport technical session, which examines the evolving and important role LNG can play as a fuel source for domestic transport and shipping. This session explores the opportunities and ‘green’ advantage when used to power ships and public transport.

“With this new session, we are taking the discussion beyond the issues of supply and demand, highlighting the benefits of LNG and its green credentials as a domestic and bunker fuel,” said Sutcliffe. “This is particularly relevant as nations look to clean up domestic emissions and reduce their carbon output.”
