The input that I want to make to the conference’s programme
Advance global relationships, innovations, and developments across the LNG value chain - - in technology, engineering, procurement, construction, business development and operations management including in areas such as: integrated carbon capture; large-scale bio-LNG/renewable synthetic LNG production; novel liquefaction, storage, and vaporization/cold energy recovery technologies or installations; novel marine terminal, FSRU, FLNG, peak shaving, merchant, bunkering and small-scale LNG designs or installations; additional emissions mitigation efforts; advanced risk and safety analyses; and advanced operating practices.
What do I expect from LNG2023?
Great opportunities to accelerate communications and progress between leading project developers, owners, equipment manufacturers, builders, consultants, regulators, researchers and others about technologies and other developments to advance the role of LNG (including low-carbon or carbon-neutral LNG) to provide economical, reliable, safe, secure energy during the global energy transition to lower-carbon energy sources.
