World Gas Conference 2015 to be held in Paris

Oilfield Technology,

Global gas and energy leaders from around the world will gather to attend the 26th World Gas Conference (WGCPARIS2015) in Paris, France from 1-5 June 2015.

Hosted by the French presidency and organised by the International Gas Union (IGU), the conference and exhibition will seek to address the recent developments in the energy sector, with a prime focus on the sustainable growth of the global gas industry.

Global gas industry

Themed ‘Growing together towards a friendly planet’, WGCPARIS2015 will showcase major achievements and milestones accomplished by the global gas industry. It will also draw on critical inputs from an array of global gas professionals to chart new strategies for the natural gas industry.

“We are much honoured to be taking on the important responsibility of promoting the use of natural gas through such an established meeting place, being the World Gas Conference. We must continue to address the world’s challenges such as increasing global energy demand by educating the energy industry on the benefits of natural gas and its imperative role in our energy future,” said Jérôme Ferrier, President, IGU.

Sustainable growth

To address the continuous need for clean and efficient energy, WGCPARIS2015 team has identified four strategic pillars, to sustain future global growth.

As Daniel Paccoud, IGU Coordination Committee advised: “Growth must be sustainable and shared between continents. Sustainable growths aim to improve current conditions without comprising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.

Therefore the WGCPARIS2015 technical programme has been structured along critical themes for each day. Beginning with ‘Human resources for the future’, the conference progresses with ‘Natural gas available everywhere’, then ‘Natural gas for a sustainable development’, building up to ‘Combination with renewables and Electricity’, on the final day.

Networking opportunity

This will be the opportunity in 2015 for attendees to come together as a community with mutual interests to ensure continued excellence in the current global gas climate. It will offer five valuable days for networking, learning and sharing information on the latest developments in the global energy industry and adaptation to future universal innovations. The delegates will include major players and suppliers to the gas industry.

WGCPARIS2015 keynote speakers will comprise the top CEOs and captains of industry associations, International Gas Companies and National Gas Companies. These highly respected individuals from around the world represent a cross-section of the industry from upstream, midstream and downstream.
