LONDON, Oct. 10, 2013 /CNW/ - DMG Events Ltd, the business events division of the Daily Mail General Trust PLC, today revealed the completed Gastech 2014 conference programme, which welcomes a wealth of leading international speakers and ground-breaking new project presentations.
Taking place in March 2014 in Seoul, Korea, and hosted by Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS), the Gastech Conference & Exhibition enters its 42nd year as one of the world's premier gas and LNG events.
The 2014 conference programme has been selected by Gastech's international governing body, which faced the challenging task of sourcing the strongest 70 commercial and technical papers from more than 500 submissions made by the international gas community. Such was the level of interest in Gastech Korea that voting on all the papers took many months, but has now resulted in the most keenly anticipated industry programme in 2014.
Key speakers include the Chief Executive of Woodside, Peter Coleman, the President of Chevron Gas & Midstream, Joseph Geagea, the Executive Vice President of Tokyo Gas, Shigeru Muraki, the Chief Operating Officer of BG Group, Martin Houston, Shell's Executive Director of Upstream, Andy Brown, plus the recently-appointed President of our hosts - KOGAS - Seok-Hyo Jang.
Gavin Sutcliffe, Gastech Korea's conference director, remarks:
"The growing urgency in demand for new sources of gas and LNG in Asia has been reflected in the outstanding conference programme we've seen developed for Gastech Korea. By taking the event to the epicentre of gas and LNG demand growth, we can connect the global supply chain to the lead consumers in the Asia-Pacific region, led by example by our hosts, KOGAS, as one of the leading consumers of LNG in the world. The programme carefully reflects the projects, plans and ambitions that will help drive economic growth in the region and we believe that the 2014 programme truly reflects the interests of gas consumers in Asia to help them achieve those goals.
The strength of the Gastech conference programme is based around its effectiveness in connecting the commercial and technical worlds, and next year's programme highlights this more compellingly than ever."
The Gastech conference & exhibition takes place at KINTEX 1, Seoul, Korea, between the 24th and 27th March 2014.
