European Gas Conference 2019

Created with Sketch. STAVANGER

Welcome to the 20th European Gas Conference
28 - 29 May, Stavanger

Natural gas is well suited for a future where Europe will decarbonise

In the years ahead of us, the European energy market will be further impacted by energy efficiency measures, heat decarbonisation and the changing nature of electricity generation. Using the virtues of both renewable energy sources and natural gas is the best and fastest way to create a sustainable low-carbon economy. The smart combination of renewables and natural gas in power, heat, transport and industry can deliver early achievements, by eradicating higher carbon energy sources such as coal, lowering costs, improving energy security and increasing system resilience. Natural gas is already providing sector integration: in the long run, cutting-edge gas technologies, such as power-to-gas, fuel cells, and conversion of natural gas to hydrogen accompanied by CCS provide solutions for the low-carbon energy world of the future.

An approach to infrastructure planning needs to accompany a wider holistic energy system vision. Having electricity as the only basis of the future energy system will mean dependence on just one infrastructure. Consideration of the role of natural gas infrastructure within the overall energy system will help society to maximise the opportunities linked to existing, largely depreciated assets. This in turn can help to reduce issues of public acceptance for new electricity infrastructure.

Europe is, and is forecast to be, well-supplied with natural gas from indigenous production, piped imports and a growing number of global suppliers of LNG. Russia and Norway are Europe’s main suppliers of natural gas. The increasing global LNG trade will make global gas markets more interdependent and flexible. The European gas market will increasingly be influenced by shifts in the global energy and gas markets, with individual countries less dependent on one supply source.

Knowledge sharing is a valuable component to success. The European Gas Conference intends to provide such knowledge. We appreciate all speakers who will share their experiences and views.

On behalf of the Organising Committee I would like to welcome you to the seminar!

Thor Otto Lohne
Chairman North Sea Infrastructure AS and
Chair of the Organising Committee
