The natural gas industry is experiencing a transitional period. The ongoing war in Ukraine magnifies the dependency of Europe to Russian gas and the consequence of this reliance. Reducing the dependence on Russian gas is a strategic imperative for the European Union. In recent years, Europe have significantly diversified their supply, building LNG terminals and new interconnectors.
This virtual conference brings leading LNG companies to discuss how the development of LNG terminals is being impacted by the current crisis, future projects, technologies, and alternatives to ensure energy welfare regardless of the political or economic situation. The objective of this is to help decision-makers share best practices related to the expansion of LNG import and storage projects, through case studies, discussions, and open dialogue.
- The Outlook for Floating Storage and Regasifica-tion Units (FSRUs)
- Jettyless LNG transfer
- LNG’s role in mitigating Europe’s dependency on Russian gas
- Expansion of current LNG terminals
- Regasification’s role in diversification of gas supply
- Optimization of LNG Supply Chain
