IGU President David Carroll said today that LNG 18 in Perth would showcase the global gas industry to the world and will be the most significant international event on the gas industry calendar in 2016.
“This is a most appropriate time for this conference and exhibition to be held in Australia which continues to move towards a leadership position in the world LNG production and export industries,” Mr Carroll said.
“The outstanding papers and presentations will provide delegates with up-to-the-minute information and comment not previously available to the world gas industry,” he said.
“We are mindful that such an important global event will be held at one of the most critical times in the world gas industry as low oil prices continue to impact on the LNG industry as a whole and in turn place increased pressure on planning and timing for future growth.
“No doubt we will still be in a lower commodities price environment when LNG 18 meets in Perth so our conference theme, The Transformation of World Gas, will be a global and relevant focus.”
