Commercial Conference

The energy trilemma has posed a number of questions across Asia and the wider world. Policymakers across the region are seeking to upscale natural gas and LNG capacities, while investing in hydrogen and transforming the renewables sector. Affordability concerns are forcing governments to adopt multi-tiered energy strategies, covering near and longer term priorities, with bold efforts on future energy solutions complemented by pragmatism on immediate needs. These real-world issues will be addressed at Gastech 2023 in Singapore.

The Commercial Conference delivers a peer-reviewed programme to industry professionals that will assist in bridging the gap between policy and delivery. Speakers from different parts of the energy value chain provide unique insights into how energy professionals can best interpret prevailing political, economic, and market trends.
