The 27th Gastech Conference and Exhibition, the
global meeting place for energy industry professionals, will
take place at the KINTEX Conference & Exhibition Centre in
Seoul, South Korea, from March 24-27 in 2014.
Hosted by the Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS) - the
worlds largest buyer of LNG - Gastech 2014 will bring
together thousands of conference delegates, visitors and VIPs
in a landmark event for the global gas community as it visits
South Korea for the first time.
Gastech says it is is proud to serve the broad and diverse
spectrum of the global gas industry. With roots firmly in gas
shipping, the event has evolved to encompass all aspects of the
upstream, midstream and downstream sectors.
We are honoured to be hosting the 27th edition of the
Gastech conference and exhibition in Seoul in 2014, said
Mr. Kang Soo Choo, CEO of KOGAS, and chairman of the Korea Gas
As one of the worlds most important gas events,
we look forward to welcoming all of the industrys key
players and decision-makers for a four-day event that promises
to deliver significant business opportunities and networking at
the highest level, he continued.
KOGAS is the single largest LNG
importer in the world, as well as the owner and operator of
three world-scale LNG regasification terminals, and a 3000km
span of nationwide transmission pipeline networks.
The Incheon LNG
regasification terminal, the largest in the world, is situated
in close proximity to the Korea International Exhibition Centre
(KINTEX) and will offer just one of several technical tour
opportunities for delegates.
Reasons for South Korea
When asked why South Korea?, Mark Carr,
president of dmg::events, the organizers of Gastech 2014,
By holding the 27th Gastech in South Korea we will ensure
that all of our exhibitors and delegates have an opportunity to
forge strong, meaningful relationships and generate
opportunities to do business together.
"South Korea has just become the 8th country to join the
trillion dollar club for global import/export
trade," Mr. Carr continued. "In addition to the many major
long-term contracts that exist with producing countries
including Australia, Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Oman, Qatar,
USA, Russia and Yemen, South Koreas buoyant economy and
advanced manufacturing base means demand for gas and LNG
continues to rise, KOGAS is actively investing in projects overseas in order to ensure
a secure gas supply for the future.
"Korean shipyards have more than 70% of the worlds
planned LNG and gas ships on their order books, and
subsequently award major contracts to suppliers from all around
the globe. International EPCs and manufacturers are also
involved in a number of new LNG
re-gasification terminals and liquefaction plants that are
planned or already under construction.
