- Trending topic is industry focal point
HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gastech today highlighted that U.S. LNG exports will be a key topic of discussion at Gastech 2019.
“U.S. LNG export capacity continues to increase and offer new opportunities for the global energy industry,” said Jenny Kelly, conference director for Gastech 2019. “Virtually all U.S. import terminal facilities are now export terminal facilities, and this shift is being felt across the value chain.”
The potential outcomes and opportunities as a result of increased LNG export capacity is an area of interest to the industry, specifically suppliers, buyers, developers, aggregators and traders.
“When you consider subsequent effects as a result of increased LNG exports, everything from U.S. E&P commodity environments, to environmental outcomes as LNG displaces the coal trade, to more dynamic global LNG trading opportunities, will be in play,” said Ben Chu, Director of Equity, LNG & Proprietary at Genscape.
The subject of LNG exports is of critical to many companies attending Gastech, including dmg affiliate Genscape, the leading global provider of real-time data and intelligence for commodity and energy markets. Genscape utilizes its state-of-the-art technology to monitor all U.S. liquefaction terminals. The company expects U.S. LNG exports to reach over 8 Bcfd by year end and 10 Bcfd by 2020.
“It has been fascinating to watch U.S. liquefaction terminals. In some sense, U.S. liquefaction players, such as tollers, contract holders and developers, are manning the gateway connecting large and important markets,” said Chu.
Some of the industry’s leading influencers and CEOs will speak at Gastech 2019 on LNG exports, including:
- Francis R. Fannon, Assistant Secretary for Energy Resources, U.S Department of State
- Chairman Neil Chatterjee, Commissioner, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
- Meg Gentle, President & CEO, Tellurian
