Gastech 2011 breaks innovative new ground in commercial and technical gas topics

Press Release   •   Oct 19, 2010 13:32 BST

A premier event in the global gas calendar serving the entire spectrum of the upstream, midstream and downstream gas sectors, Gastech 2011, held 21-24 March in Amsterdam and hosted by Shell, will feature unique and innovative programme sessions and a powerful opening leadership panel debate.

New features for the conference include examining the potential impact that unconventional gas might have, the role of gas in a future low-carbon economy, innovation and technology advances, and the future outlook for LNG. The independent Governing Body, comprising of 33 of the industry’s most influential individuals, noted the exceptional quality of papers, which were selected from an unprecedented number of submissions. Nearly 350 were received for just 70 available speaking opportunities.

“We’re bringing innovation to the conference, with a focus on many new things. Our research identifies a genuine willingness and interest in seeing innovative new topics and papers throughout the conference programme,” said Chris Clucas, Group Fleet Director, Bernhard Schulte Ship Management and a co-Chair of Gastech 2011.

Gavin Sutcliffe, Head of Content for Gastech, said, “We will be delivering the highest quality papers that will capture delegates’ imagination. The selection process was about cherry-picking the papers that will deliver the most relevant, expert information to the global gas business. Some sessions proved more popular than others and had many exceptional abstracts submitted, which made selection especially tough. Many fine papers have missed out, however, we’re now fully confident that we have an outstanding final programme that the industry will relish.”

“The conference programme is extremely important as it is the vehicle that allows people in the gas business to see the progress of industry evolution from all aspects, be it technical, commercial or other. The programme value is that it highlights innovation and successes in both the commercial world and technical world, and is beneficial to all parties in the gas business,” said Philip Hunter, Manager of LNG & Gas Centre of Excellence, Bechtel Oil, Gas & Chemicals.

The opening ceremony will be of significant appeal to all attending delegates, with ministerial attendance expected and a powerful opening commercial panel forum featuring four of the global gas industry’s most influential players. Chris Clucas said that, “Gastech breaks the mould of traditional opening ceremonies!”

Gastech 2011 conference delegates and exhibition visitors attending Gastech will benefit from an unrivalled opportunity to build new business partnerships, network with their peers, keep abreast of industry news and developments and see the latest technologies and innovations from the world’s leading suppliers.

“Gastech is at the front of LNG innovation and the arbiter of current thinking across the industry. I have been involved in the exhibition and conference over the last decade and have never been disappointed,” said Paul Sullivan, Independent LNG Consultant and co-Chair of Gastech.
