With over $200 billion worth of investments in gas industry expansion in Australia, recent months have seen the national industry exercised over what exactly this would mean for Australia’s plans to be the largest LNG producer by 2020.
With geopolitical uncertainty and the focus on climate change discussions in the mix with the oil price plunge, the consequent market pressures on exploration, existing project costs and investment in new projects have seen a revision in the market outlook for producers.
Building on the success of the inaugural conference in 2014, the Australian Gas Export Outlook 2015 will be held in Brisbane from 28-30 July, reconvening Australia’s leading gas producers and senior government leaders to assess the impact of the global oil price outlook, gas supply/demand dynamics and geopolitical/climate change drivers on the Australian gas exports.
Joining them are international stakeholders whose operations and forward plans will have a huge bearing on Australia’s gas export future.
The three-day conference will feature a mix of global supplier and buyer country spotlights, case studies, interactive discussions as well as workshops that provide a timely insight into the global gas market landscape as well as strategies to minimise risk for investment and insulate the industry from energy market fluctuations.
