    Preliminary programme announced for Gastech 2018

    Gastech, the global exhibition and conference at the forefront of the international gas, LNG and energy industries, has announced its preliminary programme ahead of the conference taking place in Barcelona this September, 17-20.

    Gastech was delighted to have received the Presidency of Honour from His Majesty King Felipe VI of Spain that was further complemented by an official endorsement from the Spanish Secretary of State for Energy, Daniel Navia Simon.

    The conference and exhibition, which will be opened by senior representatives from the host consortia, will include four days of panel discussions and presentations from the industry’s key global leaders, addressing the most current gas and LNG issues, whilst also looking into 2019 and beyond.

    The multi streamed programme features ministerial and global business dialogue sessions and strategic panel sessions alongside 28 strategic sessions. The newly expanded technical conference, which includes 82 technical sessions, will address the complete value chain from exploration and production through to distribution. It will also highlight new technologies and industry developments.

    Gastech conference director Jenny Kelly said: “Gastech has been held around the globe for the past 45 years and this is one of the strongest and most informative programmes to date. Speaking at the event will be some of the industry’s leading influencers and CEOs including Saad Sherida al-Kaabi, CEO, Qatar Petroleum,Luca de Meo, president, SEAT, Maarten Wetselaar, integrated gas and new energies director and member of the executive committee, Royal Dutch Shell, Alexander Medvedev, Deputy Chairman of the Management Committee, Gazprom, Lazlo Varro, Chief Economist, International Energy Agency and Steven L Edwards, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer, Black & Veatch.

    “The programme will allow us to hear from government officials and industry bodies as well as looking into the financial aspects of gas and LNG. It will also look to answer some of the key questions raised around the future of gas.”

    Gastech 2018 will be the most predominant global gas and LNG event, bringing together upstream, midstream and downstream professionals to convene and do business.

    For the first time this year, Gastech will collaborate with the European Association of Geoscientists & Engineers (EAGE), running an upstream/E&P zone in the exhibition as well as contributing to the technical conference stream.

    The global professional organisation for geoscientists and engineers will share key insights into various topics including ‘reservoir surveillance technologies applied to gas field production, CO2 sequestration and underground gas storage’, ‘acoustic measurements and laboratory experiments’ and the ‘role of gas in the current energy transition and future energy landscape’.

    Jenny added: “We are delighted to be collaborating with EAGE. The new partnership allows us to further strengthen our strategic and technical offering – providing a wealth of knowledge from EAGE’s expert members who are professionally involved in a range of engineering disciplines.

    “Alongside our co-location with GPEX 2018, we believe this collaboration will heighten Gastech’s reputation as the world’s leading gas, LNG and energy event and we look forward to a continued relationship with the professional body, EAGE.”

    The event spans over 50,000sqm of exhibition space, showcasing over 700 international, regional and local exhibitors while gathering over 30,000 international professionals from across the global gas, LNG and energy industries. Over 3,500 delegates and 1,200 Ministers, government officials, presidents, managing directors, CEOs and chairmen will hear from 350 senior speakers from across all sectors of the industry.

    Headline speakers have been released in the preliminary programme and organisers are currently seeking speakers for the strategic and technical conference. Industry professionals who are interested in presenting at the 2018 conference should submit their abstracts before 16 March 2018.
