WHY

In an era of technological disruption, the gas industry needs to develop a coherent message and strategic roadmap on how to effectively encourage the utilization of gas, in particular LNG, in order to stay relevant for the foreseeable future. The Gas Fest is uniquely designed to engage high level leaders and influencers across the value chain, onshore and offshore, in framing the gas agenda. We will drill into opportunities and challenges, identify solutions and form effective collaborations to reinforce the role of LNG in a low-carbon future.

HOME BASE GROUPS

During the Gas Fest days, we will employ a unique framework to collaboratively work on finding answers and solutions to some of the industry’s pressing questions.

INVESTMENT

Investment needs in connected infrastructure will grow in the coming years to enable implementation of LNG solutions at scale. How can stakeholders across the LNG value chain cooperate to solve this challenge and secure government support?

COST

The capital costs along the LNG value chain can make gas less competitive compared to alternative sources of energy. How can industry actors cooperate to reduce the cost across the LNG value chain? How can the industry make better use of technology and innovations to reduce the add-on costs across the LNG value chain?

PERCEPTION

How can the industry improve the perception of the benefits LNG provides amongst policy makers, energy consuming industry and the general public?

LNG-TO-POWER

LNG-to-power solutions offer a more flexible alternative to traditional power plants. How can the industry contribute to unlocking the opportunities in LNG-to-power markets, and develop new sources of demand?

LNG AS MARINE FUEL

Shipping currently accounts for between 2% and 3% of global greenhouse gas emissions, with an ambition to improve the fuel efficiency and carbon footprint of its vessels. What role can LNG play in making shipping a little greener, also with respect to soot, NOx and SO2 emissions?

QUALITY

In order to ensure a clean, safe and efficient performance, it’s important to understand the different aspects affecting the gas quality.
What is the status of the fuel quality today? In quality criteria for LNG, which quantities are important? How the fuel quality impacts the performance of ships and power plants?

KNOWLEDGE LAB

Four in-depth KNOWLEDGE LABS will provide fresh perspectives on the broader energy markets, with LNG in focus.

Political, macro-economic and environmental aspects impacting the future of LNG in the energy mix

Whether or not COP21 will ultimately rule out the direct use of LNG as a fuel, or if gas and renewables will be frenemies, robust policymaking is required to address the trade-offs between energy security, energy affordability, and environmental impact mitigation.

Making shipping a little greener: the role of LNG in the future shipping fuel mix

From introducing LNG to new markets to proactively help policy makers shaping a framework for LNG as a maritime fuel, the industry can provide solutions that will help the shipping industry reach its ambitions to improve the fuel efficiency and carbon footprint of its vessels.

Power generation and energy storage

In order to maintain its relevance, the gas industry must prepare to face transformative conditions, from gas storage and batteries to future scenarios on the usage of gas in power grids.

Alternatives and supplementing energy forms to LNG

Political interest in hydrogen could lead to natural gas being converted to hydrogen on a large scale while the carbon molecules will be stored in caverns, or will the issues and cost related to converting renewable energy to fuels such as hydrogen, methane and ammonia maintain the relevancy of gas for the foreseeable future?
