International Gas Business and Cooperation

An Interactive 5 - Day Training Course

International Gas Business and Cooperation

The growing Natural Gas Market

The world energy landscape is changing and evolving due to the accelerating use of natural gas. Environmental pressure and the race to mitigate the effects of climate change have propelled the use of natural gas to the forefront of the available options for reducing our dependence of fossil fuels. Natural gas although a fossil fuel itself, actually reduces the worlds carbon footprint and is considered as an intermediate step until renewable sources of energy become competitive.

The course “International Gas Business and Cooperation” will highlight the necessity for the use of natural gas and will examine the geopolitics and the need for world cooperation in the fight for climate change. Issues such as globalization and the Paris agreement and beyond 2030 and the importance of natural gas in the ongoing energy transition will be identified and discussed.

The growth of renewable energy resources in the European Union and the integration of European and Asian gas markets and how these are impacted by natural gas industry will be highlighted. Pipeline geopolitics will be examined and discussed in detail as well as the expanding role of US shale gas and the attempt for global dominance in the energy markets. These events have accelerated gas globalisation by increasing the number of trade relations.

This training course will highlight:

  • Natural gas market developments
  • Natural gas to meet future world energy demands
