The 5th Annual Africa Gas & LNG Summit 2014 (AFGAS2014) will continue its tradition of featuring a great mix of presenters, exciting conference format and a well-researched agenda. This year’s summit theme is “Influencing global trade dynamics through sustainable Gas & LNG project development.”
AFGAS2014 highlights include: Observing the economics for local and international LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) supply chain, the dynamics of the LNG demand and supply trade movements; Power generation economics, technologies, regulations and policies as well as the future of gas to power generation; Regulating downstream gas sector with special reference to gas-power for electricity services; Underlying the economics of Coal versus LNG with emphasis on environmental impact, investments as well as regulation and policies, among others.
According to Premesha Motha, Business Development Manager at Neoedge Pte Ltd., “There are still a lot of resources to uncover in Africa in terms of natural gas reserves. The continent and its new and underdeveloped reserves have become the focus of the energy hungry nations due to inevitable changes in economic, political and industrial activity.”
“We at Neoedge are fully aware of these dynamics that is why we are excited to bring back our most sought after event to Tanzania. After a thorough research, it is befitting to highlight East Africa’s gas discoveries in our conference agenda as this part of the region is currently where everyone in the industry is eyeing to explore.”, added Ms. Motha.
AFGAS2014 also focuses on sustainable development and its economic benefit to the region through strategic location, regulation reform, local content development, strategic channelled investments in project development, environmental and host community impact, gas/LNG to power project development, competitive gas/LNG pricing and safe and secure development and supply of LNG and Natural gas.
As the summit highlights the most critical topics in the global trade dynamics via a sustainable Gas & LNG project development, it carefully features presenters from the host country Tanzania, from the neighbouring African markets and other international players from the United States and Europe.
Partial list of presenters come from the following companies: Tanzania Petroleum Development Corporation, Tanzania Electricity Supply Company, Energy Water and Utilities Regulatory Authority, African Development Bank, Ministry of Energy and Minerals, Bowman Gillfilan, WorleyParsons, Wentworth Resources, Energy Commission of Ghana, LNG Technical Standards Committee.
“While AFGAS2014 promises to propel the global trade dynamics through sustainable Gas and LNG project development, it will be the type of conference which has high-quality learning from key gas & LNG experts from the South, East and West Africa. It is guaranteed to be a fun and inspirational peer-sharing platform with other international players on economics, regulation, finance and investment as well as manpower development and construction of gas, LNG and power activities.”
