PROMOTING DIALOGUE BETWEEN EUROPE AND ITS MAIN SUPPLIERS

25-27 JANUARY 2021 | Vienna 

The European Gas Conference (EGC) is the most important, geopolitical discussion in the midstream gas calendar. With Europe’s main supplier, Gazprom and hosts OMV supporting the gathering, this is the only platform which brings the most senior decision-makers from Western and Eastern European markets.

We have now begun the important steps to make our 2021 edition the best yet and released our EGC Advisory Board Report available for download. Next year, we expect key issues such as the acceleration towards a decarbonised Europe through blue and green hydrogen, the growing competitiveness of LNG, as well as the fallout from COVID-19 to all play a significant role. If you would like to be part of EGC 2021 or get the latest updates, please do not hesitate to register your interest or contact one of the team.

Agenda at a Glance 2021

As you scan through the agenda you will see new subjects including carbon trading, the potential of green and blue hydrogen and the greening of LNG.
We are currently working closely with our partners Gazprom and OMV and in the process of confirming our senior speakers line-up.

Key Take-aways from 2020

At last year’s European Gas Conference, the industry was set to discuss the profound implications of a failed transit agreement between Naftogaz and Gazprom. However, with the welcomed news that a consensus was reached a few weeks earlier this allowed attendees to focus on the role of gas in the energy transition.

Alongside the European Commission, Gazprom, the IEA, and multiple financiers including Blackrock, we explored gas’ potential alongside renewables to provide a carbon-neutral Europe by 2050. It was noted that whilst there is societal pressure on fossil fuels, gas is still viewed as having an essential role in transitioning towards a sustainable, clean future.
