11 - 13 May 2020
The European meeting place for the global gas & LNG industry
Connecting gas markets. Enhancing security of supply. Preparing for a decarbonised future.
What to expect from Flame 2020
The decarbonisation imperative
The 2020 agenda places the role of gas firmly in the context of the broader climate debate, and brings a renewed focus to the technologies needed to decarbonise the gas system, including power-to-gas, blue hydrogen, biomethane and CCUS. Decarbonisation will be the main theme of the second day of the conference, with presentations and panel discussions on the EU's new decarbonisation package and investment in low carbon projects.
LNG market dynamics
Flame will provide a vantage point to take stock of the current FID wave and assess where new supply will come from post-2025. Are oversupply and low spot prices contributing to demand creation, and if so where? LNG is a mainstay of the Flame agenda, but the most in-depth coverage of contracts, small-scale LNG and portfolio optimisation will take place during the Global LNG Summit.
Infrastructure and investment
Discuss the impact of national policy on new pipelines, receive updates on project timelines and debate the sustainable financing credentials of natural gas infrastructure. Can the existing infrastructure accommodate increasing imports and lower indigenous production, or are new investments needed in inter-connectors and gas storage? What does the future hold for Ukraine, CEE and the Baltic region?
European gas market evolution
Assess the progress being made with harmonising the EU internal energy market. What regulatory barriers stand in the way of closer market integration, and how can the gas industry help to facilitate sector coupling? Will the accelerated pace of Groningen production cuts adversely affect TTF liquidity and security of supply?
Flame Traders’ Day
Free to attend for natural gas, LNG, power and commodities traders, the Flame Traders' Day is an opportunity for natural gas professionals and senior traders to network and exchange insights. Topics up for discussion will include the impacts of macro-economic trends, the challenges of hub trading, the outlook for gas market integration and the pace of digital transformation.
Networking with decision makers
There's no place other than Flame in which you're going to meet so many of the right people in the same spot. Flame isn't a trade show, so our attendees are a select group of upper management and senior decision makers drawn from the LNG supply, utility, gas transmission, storage and shipping sectors.
