China Natural Gas Summit 2013

The latest Chinese government sworn in since March this year is dedicated to upgrading the economy through transforming industry structure. Natural gas will play a key role in the process. As China’s gas market is in its infant stage, the government as well as the industry participants will have to crack on tough issues including gas price, pipe management, level playing for all participants, policy incentives and market development. In the 2013 edition of China Natural Gas Summit 2013, the organizer has invited a very authoritative faculty to shed light on issues on how China can optimize the gas development strategy from well head planning and downstream market development. The summit will also cover topical subjects such as geopolitics in China-Russia gas cooperation, equipment requirement to meet the demand for shale gas development and new government gas utilization policy. Join us @ China Natural Gas Summit 2013 for the guidance in your future natural gas business in China.
