Gas/LNG for Power and Energy Markets Master Class
Event Venue: The Capital Empire, Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa,
Event Dates: 8-10 July 2015
Effective training is crucial in today’s fast-paced global energy market. This 3-day Executive Master Class is an intensive training course aimed at providing attendees a comprehensive overview of the gas-to-power market and the related strategic issues. The emerging dynamics and paradigm shifts seen in the energy sector, especially in the development of unconventional gas sources has become a key issue and it is more crucial than ever for energy market participants and policymakers to keep abreast of the global and local developments. More recently the declining oil price has also created threats and opportunities that market participants find hard to comprehend. Gas is increasingly playing a major role in electricity generation and gas-fired technologies such as combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) which have become the technology of choice in many parts of the world. Understanding the economics of gas-to-power vis-à-vis other generation technologies hence is pivotal to investment planning, power system economics and policy design.
The Executive Master Class aims to provide a comprehensive overview of gas/LNG from the context of electricity generation. It will introduce the issues related to global hydrocarbon development and how they could impact on regional and local power markets, presenting the question on the role and feasibility of gas/LNG as an alternative fuel in power generation. The critical drivers – generation economics, global oil & gas markets, local market dynamics and geopolitical issues will be examined. The recent decline in oil price is a case in point where the dynamics of oil market can have significant impact on the overall energy market including LNG/gas.
