Event Details

Natural Gas - At a Crossroads

With the Conference of Parties taking place in Paris towards the end of this year, global attention turns once again to what multi-lateral action should be taken to address rising emissions. The role of energy will be closely scrutinised, with no doubt pressure being bought by many parties to reduce the role of fossil fuels. However, a balance has to be met between agreeing to binding targets and providing affordable and reliable energy for economic development. From that perspective, the role gas plays will be critical – many see it as a bridging fuel, a fuel to be used as fully decarbonised systems are developed. Others see it as a destination fuel, one that must form the backbone of any future energy system. In addition, the seminar will also feature, as usual, the annual UK winter gas outlook.

Speakers

  • Emma Wild Head of Upstream O&G Advisory

  • Professor Nigel Brandon, OBE FRENG, Director of the Sustainable Gas Institute, Imperial College
  • Robin Smale, Director, Vivid Economics
  • Simon Durk, Gas Supply Manager, National Grid
