Rationale behind the 2019 Event
For the South Asia region – notably Bangladesh – the prospects for LNG remain bullish. The importation of LNG is the quickest way to meet increasing domestic demand. As power utilities are increasingly turning to natural gas to replace coal - coupled with increasing demand from industries - LNG’s role in the Bangladesh’s energy mix will only get bigger.
With spotlights on Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka joining India as major consumers of natural gas and LNG, meeting the power demand of a fast growing population coupled with strong domestic growth remains a priority.
Bangladesh is well placed to join South Asia’s LNG importers’ club and is well positioned to meet LNG demand with several floating storage and regasification units (FSRU) being penned to be deployed.
Taking on the theme, “Utilizing Natural Gas and LNG through Infrastructure Development and Distribution to meet increasing domestic demand for Power”, the timely LNG Supply, Transport & Storage South Asia Forum 2018 will continue to address and propagate LNG imports and infrastructure developments that will definitely be taking place around the region.
Bangladesh, together with Pakistan, India and Sri Lanka represents a huge game-changer for demand in LNG for the coming future and this business-critical and most anticipated forum will bring together all regional stakeholders in the natural gas and LNG value chain - from government officials, NOCs, IOCs, to private players - wanting to enter the industry.
This is the perfect opportunity for all serious stakeholders to highlight real opportunities for and establish their position in this vibrant marketplace.
