Connecting Asian Gas Buyers to Global Gas Suppliers, Unlocking Massive Gas Investment & Partnership Opportunities
Based on the massive success of inaugural Gas & LNG Series Events previously, it is our great pleasure to present the World Gas Congress Asia 2018(WGCA 2018) which is going to be staged on 18-19 Jan. 2018, Osaka, Japan with the theme "Connecting Asian Gas Buyers to Global Gas Suppliers, Unlocking Massive Gas Investment & Partnership Opportunities". This year's high-profile event will bring together 350+ distinguished attendees from global Gas & LNG industry including Government & Associations, Oil, Gas & Energy Majors, Energy Traders, LNG / CNG / FLNG Operator, EPCs, Shipping & Logistics, Power & Utilities, Terminal Owners & Operators, Equipment & Technology Providers, investment banks & funds and law firms, etc.
Operating on an 12 month cycle to ensure fresh, accurate content is delivered, WGCA 2018 brings you the the criteria, challenges, and opportunies for successful asia pacific gas & LNG operators, address the themes across competitiveness & regional cooperation, Supply and Demand, LNG Technology and Asia Natural Gas Characteristics.
As global energy demand rises, the market for liquefied natural gas (LNG) continues to expand. Set to increase by 50% between 2015 and 2020, the LNG market is one of the fastest growing in the world. This spectacular growth is transforming the market, with many new companies entering the sector and changing the industry landscape. Asian LNG demand has been strong. Japan, China and Korea have helped pick up the slack in the LNG market created by booming U.S. shale gas production displacing LNG imports. But a developing gas market brings challenges, especially when it comes to pricing.
As the world’s largest importer of LNG – importing nearly one third of all global supplies – Japan relies on stable and trustworthy supplies of LNG. Following liberalization of its electricity market, which has led to new competition among electric utilities, Japan’s retail gas market is also planned to be liberalized in 2017, which makes this year one of the most pivotal in the country’s energy market. Major utilities such as Tokyo Gas and JERA are leading the way in driving new international partnerships with Asian customers seeking to drive improved terms and conditions in their fuel procurement.
WGCA 2018 will gather industry professionals from throughout the energy centers of Asia including Japan, Korea, Singapore, China, India, Indonesia and Russia. This industry leading event will share case studies discuss opportunities and deliver solutions for the major challenges faced by the industry. It should be the ideal platform for Gas and LNG companies/individuals to know the latest updates and explore partnership opportunities for staying ahead of the game.
We look forward to your participation in World Gas Congress Asia 2018.
