C-suite dialogues: What is the future for natural gas & LNG in a low-carbon, low-cost landscape?
Session Location: CONFERENCE HALL B
  • C-suite dialogues: What is the future for natural gas & LNG in a low-carbon, low-cost landscape?

    The global gas & LNG market has grown exponentially and gas is set to overtake coal as the generation fuel of choice over the next decade or so. As demand increases but the need for carbon emissions reduction becomes critical, what longer-term role can gas play in delivering cleaner, more efficient, and cost-effective fuel to established and emerging customers, and how could this best evolve alongside renewable generation capacity?

    • Why do customers choose to buy natural gas & LNG?
    • How can natural gas & LNG be positioned as a long-term solution for power generation requirements?
    • What does the industry need to do to ensure natural gas adapts to customer needs?

C-suite dialogues: LNG as a global commodity: Japan's development of a more flexible, liquid trading market
Session Location: CONFERENCE HALL B
  • C-suite dialogues: LNG as a global commodity: Japan's development of a more flexible, liquid trading market

    A key component of Japan’s future energy strategy to 2030 is the development of a flexible and liquid LNG market and LNG trading hub. With LNG set to continue to play a primary role in delivering energy to Japan, the country is keen to create a new era of market-based pricing for LNG, rather than crude oil-linked (JCC) pricing.

    • How can Japan and other key Asia-Pacific LNG customers help drive a workable pricing mechanism that is agreeable to suppliers as well as customers?
    • Is it realistic for customers to expect an expansion of spot trading and pricing that will work in harmony with the longer-term pricing stability required by sellers?
