Global Gas Leaders' Summit

The Global Gas Leaders’ Summit sets the tone for Gastech and heralds the tremendous growth opportunities for the industry in 2019 and beyond.

The welcome address sets the scene for the day’s discussion, highlighting the economic stimulus the gas industry has provided both locally and globally. However, there are and will be challenges. The industry has shown in recent years how resilient it has been, and the summit provides the opportunity to explore the challenges and more importantly discuss the likely responses.

To conclude, summit attendees will spend some time discussing how energy policy will need to be refreshed to balance the needs of new production growth, the emergence of new regional gas hubs that are so important in the modern energy business in consolidating supply and offering export capability, and the issue of affordability in market.
