The future of the European Gas and LNG markets are uncertain. The past year has been a rollercoaster, with LNG prices reaching both record highs and lows, storage inventories at very low levels and changing attitudes to the industry in the race to decarbonization. How have supply and demand dynamics shifted, and what does the future bring for the industry?

Join us for the 15th Annual Platts European Gas and LNG Conference, where we’ll be bringing together the region’s leading gas and LNG producers, suppliers, TSOs, regulators, traders, banks and analysts to explore the challenges, opportunities, and policy developments affecting the gas and LNG markets into 2022 and beyond.

You will gain expert insights on the changing supply dynamics for gas and LNG as Europe attempts to diversify it’s gas supplies, an update on global pricing, and understand gas and LNG’s role in the energy transition in light of regulatory developments and new energies such as Hydrogen.
