This is the golden era of gas. There is shared agreement – worldwide – that natural gas is not the next big thing. The time for natural gas is now. We have growingly recognised its potential and finally technology advancements are turning challenging projects into reality. The economic and industrial boom is demanding more power. And the industry is responding with more exploration, technology developments and LNG shipments than ever before.

In 2011, we held the Gas Arabia Summit for the first time in Oman with the strong support of its Steering Committee, and we are now back in Muscat for the Gas Arabia Summit 8th edition. Over four days, the Summit will unlock key facets of the regional and international gas market, from the crucial need to avoid gas waste to a closer look at unconventional resources and LNG marketing.

Join us in Muscat to have your say, acquire new information from industry peers and enjoy the splendid setting of the Gas Arabia Summit.

Much is being said about North America’s booming gas market. Light is being shed on the Australian gas revolution. Canada is in the news with its large reserves.

But what place is reserved to the Middle East in this swiftly moving scenario? It is up to the regional industry to redefine its model and focus its know-how on discovering, developing and maximising its gas resources.

With the crude market declining for the first time in decades, we cannot avoid shifting our attention to its evident successor: natural gas. And this is why we will gather in Muscat.

The Gas Arabia Summit is a unique occasion to interact with other leading professionals from the region, share views and gain insights on the future of the natural gas industry – the most dynamic and fascinating sector of the energy value chain.

An exclusive gathering in the splendid cornice of Muscat with the powerful support of Oman’s key operating companies: OMAN GAS COMPANY, OMAN LNG, PDO and BP

The Gas Arabia Summit is the ideal setting to discuss unconventional resources’ strategies, technical challenges and projects: with its location Oman, at the heart of the regional tight gas revolution.
