25th World Gas Conference

The triennial World Gas Conference and Exhibition is the biggest and most important gas industry event, attracting more than 3,500 delegates from all over the world and showcasing the latest developments, with information on policies, strategies, technologies, challenges and opportunities. The 25th World Gas Conference took place in Kuala Lumpur, from 4-8 June 2012 with the theme “Gas: Sustaining Future Global Growth”. As the world continues to grow and with rapidly developing economies contributing to demand; natural gas is increasingly important as the world population demands more energy whilst at the same time striving for lower carbon emissions. Natural gas is the key as it features the intrinsic benefits that ensure demand for it will continue to grow at a higher rate in comparison to other conventional form of energy. As the cleanest-burning fossil fuel, natural gas plays a vital role in meeting the world’s expanding energy needs while helping to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
With emphasis on addressing issues such as enhancing the role of gas for sustainable development and balancing the needs of all stakeholders as well as improving availability of gas and access to markets, the results of those studies presented during the year 2012 conference sessions will be based on the following Strategic Guidelines and as outlined in the Triennial Work Programme:
  1. Enhance the role of gas for sustainable development and balancing the needs of all stakeholders
  2. Improve availability of gas and access to markets
  3. Maximise efficiency throughout the expanding gas value chain
  4. Ensure adequate human capability to enable growth and integrity of the industry
Promoting understanding and awareness of the problems and solutions in these four areas will provide decision makers with a powerful foundation to take the actions that will help rebuild and sustain regional and global growth. My friend Budin sent me this very interesting First Day Cover and the accompanying info sheet.
