European demand for natural gas is on a steep rise as the power generation industry as well as domestic and commercial consumers are increasingly relying on it as their main source of energy. Due to the rapid exhaustion of Europe’s own gas reserves, its dependency on imports is going to increase by an estimated 30% by 2020, the vast majority being supplied via interstate pipeline systems.

How business risks arise and how they are managed directly interests the developers (traders and distributors) of the European gas market which has been undergoing de-regularisation and in which supply diversification is a mandatory pre-requisite for actual liberalisation. Such parties will soon have to choose between competitive supply routes, and they need to evaluate how secure the transit on a certain route will be by comparison to other supply options, LNG included.

This event will offer companies directly involved in the evaluation, development, construction and operation of interstate gas pipelines, as well as to the market developers the unique opportunity to evaluate at the same place and time the status and medium-term prospects of complementary supply and transit routes starting from a comparative assessment of the amount and type of business risks such projects have been facing.
