Gordon Pickering, director at Navigant, will be in attendance.  To schedule a meeting at this event, Please Contact Us.

Gastech Conference & Exhibition is the leading event for the international oil & gas industry and a global meeting place for energy professionals working in the natural gas cycle.

The event is now in its 43rd year, and dates back to 1972, when the original event was launched in London to bring together technical decision makers involved in LNG and LPG shipping. Gastech has since evolved and now brings together the commercial and technical communities from the global energy supply chain. The conference is held every 18 months in a different international location.

This year, Singapore, the strategic center of east-west trade for more than 200 years, is well placed to play host to Gastech 2015. Home to the world’s fourth largest financial center, it boasts a vibrant energy sector which already accounts for over 5% of its gross domestic product. The Singapore government has also opened up the gas and LNG trading market to competition, welcoming new aggregators and originators of gas into the picture. Singapore is a world leader in oil refining and storage, but has ambitious plans to now develop the state as a major energy hub for the gas and LNG industries – allowing shipping, trading and storage to thrive. By bringing Gastech to Singapore for the very first time, the natural gas and LNG industries finally connect at the heart of South East Asia’s energy epicenter – at a crucial time in the state’s development plans to become a leading energy hub.
