Drivers for Demand Creation Across the World
In recent years the number of importing countries has increased, joining the club of traditional importers across Asia, Europe and North America. Why do new importers rely on LNG as a source of energy supply? Motivations include the need to replace imported oil and coal, to supplement declining domestic gas production, to meet increased needs of energy supply, security of supply, diversification of supply and cover demand peaks.
This paper session looks at the factors working together to drive the creation of demand.

LNG: A Pillar for Global Energy Transition!
As the world transitions to a cleaner and more sustainable energy future, LNG will play an important and growing role in the global energy mix.
The forum will review in detail how LNG will meet the challenge facing the energy industry: to provide the maximum number of people with access to safe, reliable and competitively priced energy while improving air quality and reducing the impact of climate change.
The panel will discuss the key contribution LNG will make to support the development of variable renewable power generation, to provide energy for industrial processes or for residential homes and to fuel the transport of people and goods. It will also address the key parameters for the growth of LNG such as public perception, infrastructure and cross-industry collaboration.
Digital & Sustainable Future
Digital and sustainable developments in technology and response(s) to changing community attitudes will be explored in this paper session, along with discussions on alternative production and uses of LNG in a low carbon world and how intelligent and automated systems are changing the design and operations of production plants and all elements of the LNG supply chain.

Shipping & Floating LNG
This session deals with the extremely important aspect of the LNG value chain related to shipping; the main reason that natural gas is liquefied and is able to be traded internationally. This paper session also studies the increasing activity regarding floating LNG, across both regasification and liquefaction.

Linking the Value Chain for Financeability
The papers in this session explore the below issues from different perspectives, across regions and throughout the value chain including downstream deregulation, access, shipping and upstream uncertainties:
- International integrated gas projects such as LNG remain capital intensive and, in most cases, need to tap into the finance market
- Upstream projects face ongoing challenges including resource uncertainty, completion, technology and sovereign risk
- As downstream markets become more fragmented, deregulated and potentially less credit worthy, how (and who) will bring the value chain together?

Technical Innovation for the Future of LNG
Demand for LNG continues to grow at a pace that is well above that of nearly all other sources of energy. New sources of natural gas and evolving commercial models on both ends of the LNG value chain make technical innovations as important as ever; they are often the key to enabling projects to reach the economic performance needed to bring them into fruition.
Focus areas for this Forum include the impact on cost, schedule, and performance from technology developments in liquefaction, shipping, LNG transfer systems, receiving terminals, and LNG as a transportation fuel, facilitated by an expert panel representing nearly all aspects of the LNG industry.

LNG Infrastructure Projects: Cases & Trends
At a time when a new wave of LNG projects is eagerly expected by the industry in response to a tightening of the LNG market in the early 2020’s, this session examines some of the challenges faced and key success factors of the most recent projects. A special focus will be given to specific projects (“case studies”), including “new frontier” projects such as the Yamal and BC LNG export project, addressing both their commercial and technical key features.
The session will also draw attention to major developments affecting the Chinese LNG market in terms of regulation, infrastructure and market trends and interfacing with the global LNG market.

- Why FLNG rather than on-shore?
- What have been the critical success factors in reaching this significant achievement?
- What are the major lessons in terms of HSE ?
- What unexpected incidents or events occurred along the way, both undesirable and positive?
- Based on your experience, what would you advise others to do differently or emulate?
Commercial Evolution and the Changing Industry Dynamic
This session, formed of paper presentations, examine the following questions:
- How will the industry evolve commercially in coming decades?
- How will liquidity, price formation and trade dynamics change?
- What influence will seasonality, regulation, growing flexibility and short-term trades have?
- How will Buyers with large and diverse portfolios impact LNG trade ?
