Australian Gas Export Outlook 2014 Conference

Global energy demand is growing and liquefied natural gas (LNG) is set to play a major role in filling this demand growth in coming decades. The real challenge is in developing reliable, sustainable supply.

There are three major emerging suppliers – Canada, the USA and East Africa and Australia is going to have to compete. High costs are putting billions of dollars of future investment in Australian LNG projects at risk.

The Australian Gas Export Outlook 2014, 24-26 June in Brisbane is a high-profile forum where politicians, producers, buyers, bureaucrats and expert analysts will gather to discuss Australia’s place in future global LNG race.

In the words of Keith Orchison, the head of the event’s advisory panel, "While much of the day-to-day debate in Australia is about domestic gas prices, the rows over coal seam methane development and the efforts to make current LNG projects viable, it would be folly to lose sight of the longer-term and the prospects for Australia to become the leader in international gas trade.

Delivering key industry speakers including: 

“Australia has the potential to be a world leader in gas with all sorts of spin-off advantages. But it isn’t enough to have an abundant resource. We have significant hurdles to overcome to achieve enduring success at a global level. Above everything else, we need a stable and predictable investment climate.” - David Byers, Chief Executive, APPEA (Gas Today - 20 March 2014)
