Thank you for making Global Gas & LNG Summit 2011 a huge success

Encouraged and supported by our esteemed industry partners with the success of our past Africa Gas & LNG Summit 2010 (AFGAS), Neoedge rolled out another premier event – GLOBAL GAS & LNG SUMMIT 2011 which was held at Shangri-La Hotel Dubai from 07 to 10 March 2011.  Once again, we reaped the same success. Close to 70 delegates gathered together and they make up key decision makers from various backgrounds within the gas & LNG industry with representations from almost all continents. We had delegations from Australia, Singapore, Indonesia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Oman, Qatar, Ghana, Nigeria, Turkey, Russia, Spain, Italy, United Kingdom, Scotland, Austria, United States of America and of course the host country of United Arab Emirates. Pricing, demand and supply seem to be the main concern for almost everyone present especially with the current volatile political situation which is seeing the dramatic increase in oil prices per barrel. The best strategies, approaches, techniques and innovations in the market were discussed during the summit. Together with our panel of top notch experts and consultants, participants learned and benefited from the ideas and experiences of these practitioners and more importantly, they left on a high and positive note.

Here are some highlights at the event:

Main Conference
