Proposals to liquefy and export North American gas as LNG have grown more numerous and controversial since our 2010 conference. At last count, ten liquefaction and export projects have been proposed on both coasts of North America. Analysts warn, however, that the United States is preparing to export its clean, abundant natural gas to countries like China, where it will be used for transportation fuel, while the U.S. will continue to import high-cost crude for its transportation.
This yearâ€™s conference will expand on our 2010 meeting to address political issues such as FERCâ€™s willingness to approve export plant construction permits as well as examine new proposals. Costs, political hurdles and regulatory issues will be discussed. Join us for what promises to be an informative and lively event.
The conference will open at 8:00AM with a registration and a continental breakfast. The day's presentations will be followed by a closing reception at 5:00PM. Speakers and topics include:
