Jenny Kelly, conference director for Gastech 2019, said: “US LNG export capacity continues to increase and offer new opportunities for the global energy industry.”
“Virtually all US import terminal facilities are now export terminal facilities, and this shift is being felt across the value chain.”
The potential outcomes and opportunities as a result of increased LNG export capacity is an area of interest to the industry, specifically suppliers, buyers, developers, aggregators and traders.
Ben Chu, Director of Equity, LNG & Proprietary at Genscape, said: “When you consider subsequent effects as a result of increased LNG exports, everything from US E&P commodity environments, to environmental outcomes as LNG displaces the coal trade, to more dynamic global LNG trading opportunities, will be in play.”
“It has been fascinating to watch US liquefaction terminals. In some sense, US liquefaction players, such as tollers, contract holders and developers, are manning the gateway connecting large and important markets.
Some of the industry’s leading influencers and CEOs will speak at Gastech 2019 on LNG exports, including the following:
- Francis R. Fannon, Assistant Secretary for Energy Resources, US Department of State.
- Chairman Neil Chatterjee, Commissioner, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
- Meg Gentle, President & CEO, Tellurian.
