Low Oil Prices and LNG -
Supporting the LNG Infrastructure development in the Baltic Sea Region
Even before oil prices began to fall last year, the development of the necessary LNG (liquefied natural gas) infrastructure for transport faced significant challenges – and for the foreseeable future, the ongoing LNG infrastructure development will encounter rough seas. While the long-term economic fundamentals remain sound for the LNG expansion, additional measures are needed to boost the continuous development of both the LNG infrastructure and the LNG value chain in the region.
During this half-day seminar, we will be looking into actions supporting the continuous LNG development in the Baltic Sea Region by exploring innovations to open up new markets and adding on new end-users to the existing infrastructure.
