Transforming the future of LNG together

The S&P Global Platts 20th Annual LNG Conference is the meeting place for energy professionals to tackle crucial issues impacting the markets. We are gathering the industry to discuss navigating the global pandemic and the associated risks, the ongoing transition of the global energy economy, policy implications of the 2020 U.S. election and more.

This is a must-attend event for LNG producers, buyers, traders, shippers, investors and financiers looking to stay competitive and transform the future of LNG. While the event will be taking place virtually, we’ll have the high-caliber content and speakers the industry has come to expect. The 5-hour program packs in content-rich panel discussions, breakout sessions, interactive real-time Q&A, networking opportunities, and more.

Topics of discussion will include:

  • — What is the short and long-term global outlook for LNG –emerging markets, demand forecasts, infrastructure, policy, pricing and trade?
  • — What role will LNG play in the era of renewables? A transition fuel or trusted partner through 2030? 2050?
  • — How can we reduce LNG’s carbon foot print to become more sustainable?
  • — What are some disruptive strategies and technologies we can leverage to transform LNG?
