An industry facing new dynamics – Adapt and survive

The date has been set for Platts 10th European Gas Summit and will take place in the wonderful city of Dusseldorf.

With low prices, uncertain demand and the arrival of US LNG to Europe at competitive prices, the European gas market could be on the verge of a major transformation. As players fight to keep – or win – market share, the question is who will emerge victorious?

The low-price environment is taking its toll on gas producers just as it has on oil producers. With gas prices in the doldrums and the prospect for demand growth uncertain, what incentive is there for investment in new gas production facilities and new transportation infrastructure? Will medium-term global gas output be impacted by the slowdown in investment? Your questions and more will be answered on stage by leading industry figures and renowned experts this September.

What to expect from 2016?

  • Assessing the European Gas Market European gas is currently in a price war. Prices keep falling and the market is flooded with cheap gas. But how long can this carry on, and if price keep falling with this trigger a demand recovery similar to the oil market? Hear from Uniper Global Commodities, Statoil, Wintershall and CEZ as they delve deeper.
  • Here comes the wave from the US LNG looks set to become one of Europe’s key sources of gas in the near future with Qatar already exporting and the US just beginning. What impact will this have on the price and what are European producers doing to counteract the uptake of LNG? These questions are answered and more by Centrica, Osaka Gas and RWE Gasspeicher
  • The regulatory landscape For many, there has been a feeling of never ending changes to EU policy for the gas industry. The result is a lack of confidence to invest and for organizations to develop strategies. Is the end in sight yet? And what lies ahead post 2020? Join the European Commission, E-Control, E3G & International Gas Union as they shed light on the future post 2020 and 2030
  • More networking opportunities Platts understand the need for effective and valuable networking time, and this event will be no exception. Built into each day are a number of dedicated social functions designed to stimulate participant interaction including an evening drinks reception on day one.
