IEA Gas 2017 Global Launch

Past Event

July 13, 2017

5:30 am - 7:00 am

The natural gas market is undergoing a fundamental transformation. Industry has overtaken the power sector as the driving force behind the growing use of gas. At the same time, structural changes in gas supply and trade are changing global gas market. Heavily oversupplied markets, the ongoing shale-gas revolution in the United States and the fast-growing LNG trade are disrupting traditional gas business and pricing models. This is forcing market players to redefine their strategies and explore new markets. Please join the Center on Global Energy Policy for the global launch of the IEA’s annual natural-gas market analysis and forecast report. Renamed Gas 2017, the market report provides a detailed analysis of supply and trade developments, infrastructure investments, and demand-growth forecast through 2022. Presenting the report will be Dr. Fatih Birol, the IEA’s Executive Director, and Peter Fraser, the head of the IEA’s Gas, Coal and Power Markets Division. Bob McNally, Founder and President of The Rapidan Group and Center on Global Energy Policy Fellow will moderate the discussion following the presentation. Registration is required to attend in person. The event will also be livestreamed at energypolicy.columbia.edu/watch. This event is open to press. Please direct media inquiries to Jamie Shellenberger-Bessmann ([email protected]) A podcast of this event (in addition to other past Center events) will be available ~5 days after the date of the event through iTunes or via our website.
