Leaders from Africa and LatAm’s Major Gas Producing Economies To Gather

(EnergyNet Ltd., 2.Mar.2022) — As gas again is discussed as a critical fuel for the energy transition, the most senior officials from Africa and Latin America’s natural gas economies are set to visit Washington DC on 16-18 March, to meet leading institutional and private sector investors at the Powering Africa Summit and Latin America Energy Forum respectively.

As demand and supply for natural gas and LNG across regions undergo radical changes, the economics of energy systems will change, however it is clear the market needs stability and a connected path forward outlining the investment opportunities.

Investment and development areas being discussed by stakeholders at the highest level of government include:

  • What is the natural gas market going to look like in the near future? What role will LNG play in the global supply?
  • Is there a potential for gas projects and markets to be fast tracked? How will the private sector support massive gas sector development?
  • How will an energised gas market impact investor?
  • In which countries and markets should I explore investment opportunities? When is the best time for me to react?

With the summit limited to proven investors only, the interactive boardroom discussions will provide a setting where stakeholders and investors will debate with invited senior-level executives on the most strategic topics of the moment.
