Event preview: 5th LNG Supply, Transport & Storage Philippines Forum

What to expect from the upcoming LNG event held in Manila

Over the couple of months, interest in realising the Philippines’s first LNG hub gathered significant momentum.

Solicited proposals by global LNG players to partner are being considered by both the government and key local stakeholders.

One of the most critical parts of the value chain relates to LNG infrastructure experts, and this neutral platform will see key infrastructure players such as Wison Marine and AG&P presenting case studies relating to their expertise and successes.

Thus, significant LNG to Power project opportunities will be presented and addressed at the timely 5th LNG Supply, Transport & Storage Philippines Forum, taking place on October 24-26 2018 at the SMX AURA, Manila, Philippines.
