London, UK (PRWEB UK) 9 March 2015
NEWLY RELEASED: According to the CEO of ExxonMobil, the world should prepare itself for a period of relatively weak oil prices. The fall of approximately 50% in oil prices since last summer has led to expectations that US production will soon level off and perhaps go into decline if prices do not bounce back quickly (Financial Times, 2015).
Building on this highly pressing issue of concern, SMi's 9th annual Gas Storage and Transmissions conference, taking place on 17-18 June in London, UK; will feature a highly anticipated talk by Hans-Age Nielsen, Chief Consultant, Business Development from Energinet Gas Storage.
His speech entitled The Role of Gas Storage in the Transition to a Low Carbon Future will answer the question, which is now more relevant than ever: Will the low oil price stop renewable energy? As he discusses the current state of the market, he will also talk about what gas storage has to offer and the different business models for energy storage.
This conference will provide its delegates with an information packed agenda with representatives from across the industry giving a comprehensive overview of the market, looking at the current state of the European Gas market and security of supply, gas transmission and how gas storage will contribute to future demand.
