Natural Gas – At a Crossroads

With the Conference of Parties taking place in Paris towards the end of this year, global attention will turn again to what multi-lateral action should be taken to address rising emissions. A balance has to be met between agreeing to binding targets and providing affordable and reliable energy for economic development. From that perspective, the role gas plays will be critical – many see it as a bridging fuel, others see it as a destination fuel. In addition to addressing this question the seminar will also feature the annual UK winter gas outlook.

Venue:The Shell Centre, London, SE1 7NA

Speaker(s):Professor Nigel Brandon,Director, Sustainable Gas Institute,Robin Smale Vivid Economics, Simon Durk Supply Manager, National Grid, Emma Wild KPMG
