The demand for global energy continues to increase, resulting in new energy frontiers being opened. In the last few years, the increased supply and production of natural gas in the United States have proven to be a potential game-changer for the US energy market—allowing companies to pursue more LNG export opportunities. Booming coal and gas investments as well as development in Africa have led to predictions that gas and coal projects could bring Mozambique more than $80 billion over the next several years. Meanwhile, hydraulic fracturing and issues surrounding hydrocarbon development continue to be a concern, with risk mitigation becoming imperative for companies on the front-end.
Please join us as our panelists provide in-depth discussions on these topics and provide their insights into the new frontiers of the energy industry.
Topics will include:
- Shale gas issues and mitigating risk
- The increasing energy activity in Africa
- LNG from the view of the US exporter
