Gastech 2022 expected to draw 38,000 energy professionals
By Keefe Borden27 July 2022
Registration for the Gastech 2022 conference in Milan remains open for visitors here and for delegates here. The conference is expected to attract at least 38,000 energy professionals and 750 international exhibitors.
Gastech is the world’s largest integrated conference and exhibition supporting the global natural gas, LNG, hydrogen, and low-carbon solutions value chain. This year, it will be held from Sept. 5 – 8 in Milan.
Earlier this summer, Gastech announced the launch of its 2022 conference program, which will feature multiple keynote speakers: Christiana Figueres, former secretary general of the UNFCCC; Sigmar Gabriel, former vice-chancellor and foreign minister of Germany; and Dan Brouillette, president, Sempra Infrastructure and former US secretary of energy.
In the buildup to COP27, and as the global energy landscape faces its biggest upheaval in decades, over 4000 delegates, including CEOs, ministers, and innovators from across the gas sector, will gather for the 50th anniversary of Gastech. Through strategic and technical panel sessions, and the largest industry exhibition floor, Gastech will address the future of energy, environmental impact and sustainability, climate mitigation, and energy security.
Gastech, with co-hosts Baker Hughes, Chevron, Eni, and Tellurian, has announced the conference programme for its 50-year anniversary edition, Gastech 2022 in Milan, the largest integrated industry event for the global natural gas, LNG, hydrogen, and low-carbon solutions sector.
Taking place in the Fiera Milano exhibition centre, Gastech will be hosted under the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Ecological Transition, the Italian Trade Agency, and Assorisorse - the Italian Sustainable Energy & Resources Industry Association.
This year has become historic year for the gas sector. The crisis in Ukraine has set off a chain of events that could permanently reshape global energy markets. A global supply crisis, and unprecedented market volatility is transforming the status quo, rerouting international supply chains, and overturning decades of international energy policy, organizers said.
As the industry faces the critical challenges of decarbonization, energy security, and energy supply, more than ever before Gastech’s 2022 conference will be the forum for the industry to come together and discuss these changes and chart a roadmap for the future.
Occurring just ahead of COP27 in Egypt, Gastech will also be a vital platform for the industry to help set the global net zero agenda, enabling energy leaders to highlight the central role of natural gas, LNG, hydrogen, and low-carbon solutions in achieving a ‘just’ energy transition, the organizers said.
Other speakers include Lorenzo Simonelli, chairman and CEO, Baker Hughes; Professor Klaus-Dieter Maubach, CEO of Uniper SE; and Meg O’Neill, CEO and managing Director, Woodside Energy Ltd.
From balancing energy security imperatives with longer-term climate goals, to creating a sustainable hydrogen market, Gastech’s strategic conference program will feature the leading companies in the sector to discuss the core issues driving the industry.
