“Thanks to the Energy Council for a successful conference. The success of the panel discussion format really depends on the quality of the panellists, and the relevance and topicality of the subject matter, all of which were excellent.  The ground is shifting in the global gas industry, especially regarding gas to power in developing markets and Africa in particular. Events like this are important for bringing stakeholders together, and help unlock the benefits that development of such projects can bring, so thanks are due to the Energy Council for this.”
Andrew Fisher, Senior Associate, The Energy Contract Company

"Well done on an exceptionally organised and very interesting Gas-to-Power World Congress this year. You had the key players on the stage and in the room and it was great to have the opportunity to discuss projects and network face-to-face. I learned a lot and made some great new contacts."
