This event will feature a distinguished panel of international energy experts who will provide an in-depth overview of unconventional gas developments in North America and Europe, and discuss the implications of unconventional gas production on the global gas market. The panel will focus on how unconventional gas production will affect supply chains from the Middle East and Russia, as well as its ramifications on the global LNG trade and international gas pricing and demand. The speakers will also examine the relative effect nascent environmental concerns surrounding unconventional gas will have on future projects.
The panel will also debate whether the lessons learnt in the North American unconventional gas sector could be repeated elsewhere, and how the lack of coherent energy policies may inhibit unconventional gas production in certain jurisdictions.
This conference is extremely topical for practitioners specializing in energy transactions, including attorneys, investment bankers, industry analysts, as well as energy company executives, fund managers, institutional investors, and anyone who needs to understand the fast paced changes impacting our energy future.
