London (PRWEB UK) 9 November 2013
Shale gas has the potential to revolutionise the European energy landscape, but how can operators commercialise shale gas, increase competitiveness and create energy security in such a high risk sector? As many countries are looking to reduce dependence on Russia, commercialisation of shale gas could mean complete economic change. Understanding how to attract investors and operators, and to improve stakeholder value are top priorities for many European countries who must overcome their unique challenges to move the unconventional gas industry forward.
Against this backdrop, SMi's 7th annual Unconventional Gas conference, taking place on 5-6 March in London, will bring together senior industry figures at the forefront of unconventional gas development to understand how to promote stakeholder value and explore best practices towards commercialisation. The two-day programme will build on the success of the last event with keynote presentations from 3Legs Resources, Reach Coal Seam Gas, PGNiG, Breitling Oil and Gas, Tamboran Resources, BP and BNK Polska Sp. z.o.o. among others.
Speaker Panel includes:
- Kamlesh Parmar, CEO, 3Legs Resources
- Graham Dean, Managing Director, Reach Coal Seam Gas
- Marcin Lewenstein, Director, Department of Strategy, PGNiG
- Chris Faulkner, CEO, Breitling Oil and Gas
