Conference Documentation: Gas Storage and Transmissions

SMi’s 10th annual Gas Storage and Transmissions conference returns to London June 2016! There is much debate and discussion around the European and UK Gas market where demand has struggled to keep up with storage capacity, however, new approaches to regulation and changing stances of many European governments combined with new infrastructure projects signal an exciting and profitable climate for this sector. Therefore, it is once again vital that the industry come together to discuss how to move forward as a collective, overcome any existing concerns and utilise the commercial opportunities that the gas storage and transmissions sector offers. Join us in London to hear about the latest in legislation as we discuss the role that regulators must play in rejuvenating this dynamic market. We will also explore the latest and future infrastructural developments across Europe, including the Turkish, Nord and South Streams and forthcoming Nord Stream 2 project. We will assess whether diversifying gas supply routes and new interconnector projects can meet the growing need for natural gas imports in Europe as production in the North Sea continues to fall. Join key decision makers from Europe’s biggest storage operators to discuss the role storage and transmission can play in safeguarding the EU's security of energy supply.

SMi’s 10th annual Gas Storage and Transmissions conference will explore how the changing landscape of the energy industry will impact this sector. We will be looking at the current state of the European Gas market and security of supply, gas transmission and how gas storage will contribute to future demand, infrastructure and investment challenges. These are just some of the questions and discussions that will be had at SMi’s 10th annual Gas Storage and Transmission Conference, can you afford to miss out?
