On 17-20 September 2018, the global energy industries came together as one at Gastech 2018
Gastech stands as the world's leading and largest integrated gas, LNG and energy event for the international energy industry to come together to form strategic relationships, discuss and debate key energy challenges and do business across the value chain.
Inaugurated by His Majesty King Felipe VI of Spain, the global exhibition facilitated thousands of bi-lateral meetings where millions of dollars of contracts were negotiated and signed, while the conference gathered the world's energy leadership teams for critical & progressive discussions.

This is an exciting, transformative time for the U.S. energy landscape and cities like Houston will be crucial in defining just what that transition looks like. I’m eager to join my government and industry partners to welcome esteemed participants to this energy capital for Gastech 2019 as we again come together for a global discussion on the future of natural gas.
