The Gastech 2018 conference will see an extended ministerial and global business leader dialogue session and strategic panel session, that will highlight the global outlook and shape the energy landscape for decades to come. The enhanced technical conference programme, featuring over 50 sessions, will discuss and debate in detail the complete value chain from exploration and production through to distribution, highlighting new technologies and industry developments.
The Gastech 2018 exhibition is expected to be the biggest edition yet, with more exhibitors, visitors and exhibition features than ever before. With dedicated networking spaces, pavilions and industry zones, the show floor has been designed to provide your company with a high-traffic platform to showcase your latest products, services and technologies.
We look forward to welcoming you all to Gastech 2018 in Barcelona, Spain.
The CEDIGAZ report "Medium and Long Term Natural Gas Outlook 2017", looks at the developing role of natural gas as a key transition fuel towards an increasingly renewable-based, efficient and sustainable energy system.

A new white paper produced by researchers at the Sustainable GAS Institute (SGI) at Imperial College reviews evidence on low-pressure gas networks, which is the part of the infrastructure that supplies homes and businesses with natural gas. The researchers investigate switching this network to other gasses such as biomethane and hydrogen, which can be produced with reduced C0₂ emissions. Here are the report’s key findings:
The 5th instalment of the Gastalk webinar series saw presenter Susan Sakmar, Author and visiting Law Professor at the University of Houston Law Centre and leading analyst Stephen O’Rourke, Research Director for Gas Supply – Global Gas Team for Wood Mackenzie discuss the main gas and LNG stories of the month. If you missed out, we have selected some highlights below.
In our latest Global Gas Market Outlook, we predict that natural gas will represent 23%—up from 22% in 2016—of the global energy mix by 2030. We also expect total natural gas demand to grow 1.4% p.a. from ~3,500 bcm in 2016 to ~4,300 bcm in 2030.
For global LNG projects, it is essential that costs are controlled to be profitable at current LNG prices to compete against coal and renewables. KPMG has provided Gastech Insights with an informative infographic displaying the 7 key areas which must be carefully considered.
Take a look at the infographic below to see the valuable insights and learn more about what is needed to ensure cost competitiveness:
Over the last 50 years, LNG has become a feasible and technically proven way of transferring natural gas from production locations to consumers, with this development being driven by economies of scale and substantial advances in technology. The competitive dynamics in today’s LNG market require projects to be capable of producing low cost LNG and to reduce the construction schedules and the investment costs through innovative technologies.
Energy is indispensable for human welfare and industrial developments. For developing countries, new sources of energy are strongly needed, and gas and LNG take an important role with relative abundance in the regions. Whereas conventional LNG has been developed targeting larger volume of production for long distance and overseas export, there are many necessities for regional energy infrastructures and technologies which are different from those of traditional LNG.
Remote full-offshore FPSO type LNG liquefaction applications can economically afford to place a low emphasis on the efficiency of the liquefaction technology compared to other features and factors. Nitrogen expansion technology or basic single mixed refrigerant (SMR) processes are well suited for these remote floating LNG projects since the resulting facilities are relatively simple to operate and have a reasonably small footprint, while access to large reserves of offshore stranded gas renders the inherent inefficiencies and high emissions of these processes less consequential.
Throughout 2017, Europe is set to retain numerous gas supply options through traditional pipelines as well as LNG imports; absorbing a large proportion of the vast new LNG supply. With Europe offering liquidity and the much needed regasification capacity, it is a time of opportunity for the developing market.

Natural gas production accounted for just a third of Total’s output ten years ago, however in 2016 it was recorded at over 48%. This dramatic growth reflects Total’s choice to meet the challenges of climate change and support growth in global energy demand.
Global gas demand is expected to grow, with consumption reaching approximately 4,000 billion cubic meters by 2022. In the coming years, Europe is likely to see growing competition between LNG imports and pipeline gas supplies, which could dramatically benefit the consumers.
Having gained over 20 years of experience in the energy industry working for BP and BG Group, Mark Simons, Director of Energy Flux Limited talked with Gastech Insights to discuss Europe’s gas market and what gas companies need to be doing to maximise the growth possibilities.
Gastech Insights: How can Europe’s gas market absorb excess gas supply?
Enagás is Spain’s leading natural gas transmission company, with around 12,000km of gas pipelines, three underground storage facilities and four regasification plants. With more than 30 years in the natural gas industry and part of the Executive Advisory Board for the European Autumn Gas Conference, Gastech Insights, spoke with Francisco P.
With the Driftwood LNG project underway, Tellurian’s vision to secure low-cost natural gas as well as deliver reliable and flexible LNG globally is fast becoming a reality. Within the Tellurian team, they have over 50 years’ experience delivering cost-leading LNG projects and are responsible for over 20% of the LNG in production today.
