Up until a few years ago, Natural Gas was considered the poor cousin of oil production in the MENA region. Though it is the ideal fuel for electricity generation, natural gas was not readily available in all locations. While conversion to natural gas is encouraged, MENA has been relatively slow to get into the natural gas age. Today natural gas is at the centre of the energy sector. As the natural gas energy distribution continues to grow worldwide, it is playing a particularly important role in the MENA region.

The natural gas sector continues to show extremely strong fundamentals despite the havoc that the global recession has played. The MENA region is one of the world’s largest players in hydrocarbon supply and the robust economic growth in recent years has transformed the region into a major gas market in its own right with an expectant long term growth rate. This positive long-term view of the industry has been enshrined with the advent of Jacob Fleming Groups “MENA Natural Gas Distribution Summit 2009”.

The summit strives to be an amalgamation of expert opinion and individual best practices so as to allow the growth and sustainability of natural gas investment. The MENA region owns about 46% of the world’s natural gas reserves. Whether it is the major structures in the Arabian Iranian Basin or the reservoir formation off Qatar, the natural gas potential this region holds is limitless.

The new economic and scientific opportunities and initiatives doubtless face a host of uphill challenges that will be addressed at the summit. Whether it is the Fiscal & Regulatory aspects of natural gas or the availability of Natural Gas, these issues and many more will be addressed by industry experts who have witnessed the potential of natural gas and have a considerable amount of foresight to envision the future of it.

Join these knowledge pools as they decipher the elements necessary to build and operate an effective natural gas utility, Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) compliance, Infrastructure/Retrofitting for CNG Network issues and the Importance of Biomethane as a fuel for vehicle transport.

The summit is an effort by Jacob Fleming to help disseminate knowledge about key positional assets, major players & effective buy options that could ultimately provide critical competitive advantages to serve markets in the future. It is an open platform where industry players will come together and plan to successfully navigate this growing market.
