- Gastech unveils its 2023 strategic agenda and speakers, including participation from senior executives of Baker Hughes, ExxonMobil, Shell, and the International Energy Forum, as well as other global business leaders in energy, finance, and technology.
- Timed two months ahead of COP 28, Gastech 2023 will lay the groundwork for the critical conversations that will take place in the UAE, by demonstrating how the gas sector is already delivering practicable short, medium, and long-term solutions to energy security, affordability, and sustainability.
Singapore, 2 June 2023 – Global energy experts convening in Singapore for Gastech 2023 will include CEOs, company presidents, and executive chairs of high-level international energy businesses and organisations, including Baker Hughes, Shell, ExxonMobil, and the International Energy Forum.
This year’s edition of Gastech is supported by Enterprise Singapore and Singapore Tourism Board, and co-hosted by ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell, and Venture Global LNG. It will take place at Singapore EXPO, on 5-8 September 2023.
The 2023 programme, which includes high-level ministerial sessions, leadership roundtables and technical and commercial conferences, will focus on the major themes of energy supply security, low-carbon energy for sustainable global growth, energy transition alliances, and the development of the energy industry workforce globally. This year’s Gastech Executive Committee, which oversees the strategic leadership agenda, is chaired by Alan Heng, Group Chief Executive Officer, Pavilion Energy Pte Ltd.
Taking place in the build-up to COP 28, Gastech 2023 will elaborate on the ideas, solutions and innovations that will enable the energy industry to manage and deliver the transition to low-carbon energy, whilst continuing to supply the world with its energy needs. Through high-level panel discussions focused on the importance of low-carbon solutions and climate technologies industries, global business leaders will elaborate on the investment and regulation strategies required to ensure global energy security, affordability, and sustainability.
The energy supplies needed in the years ahead, and the need for energy systems to be on track for net zero emissions by 2050, is already heightening the pressure on the investment community. During the Gastech 2023 Strategic Conference, global energy leaders will share insights on the investment landscape required to stimulate adequate funding on both new and existing energy production as well as next generation energy solutions and climate technologies. Shifts in financing strategies, a changing appetite for risk and a demand for greater flexibility are transforming partnership models. As the gas industry both expands and fragments, introducing greater liquidity and optionality, Gastech will examine how new opportunities for partnerships are being established in the global LNG market and demonstrate the resilience and agility of natural gas.
