JOGMEC International Seminar 2019 - Gas Security -

 We are pleased to inform you that JOGMEC International Seminar 2019 will be held on 27th of September, 2019. It is evident that the market structure and trends for liquefied natural gas (LNG) has been dramatically evolving, as we are expecting that the number of new participants in the market will increase at the current views where LNG demand is set to grow in Asian countries and the United States is reported to become the largest LNG exporter in five years. Japan greatly relies almost 40% of its power generation on imported LNG, and it is a significant theme for us to think of how to ensure gas supply security and stability under such market.
 We would like to offer an opportunity for LNG industry delegates and participants worldwide to talk about Gas Security with remarkable speakers as follows.
