Understanding the east coast gas market “mess”

EAEMO 2015 will help all in attendance better understand the east coast energy market outlook.

EAEMO 2015 will help all in attendance better understand the east coast energy market outlook.

In an editorial in the AFR last month, Tony Wood said: “In gas, both customers and suppliers see the market as a mess”.

With reviews and policy uncertainty in multiple jurisdictions, community opposition to further development in key areas, a step change in demand stemming from LNG exports and a global shift in prices, this is no surprise.

For all stakeholders in the east coast gas market, understanding the evolving policy environment (federally and in each state), the changing supply and demand dynamics and the gas price outlook is critical. The way in which the situation evolves over the coming months and years will have significant implications for the length of the energy supply chain.

The Eastern Australia’s Energy Markets Outlook conference is focussing sharply on this issue, bringing together expert speakers from government, gas producers, pipelines and analysts to help all in attendance better understand the market outlook.

As well as having a number of gas specific keynotes in the main conference (including APPEA’s new CEO Malcolm Roberts, Rod Sims and Martin Ferguson) the conference will also host a day focused solely on gas supply and demand dynamics on 18 September, as well as a pre-conference in-depth learning session run by Oakley Greenwood on 15 September.
