12 - 13 October 2020
The European meeting place for the global gas & LNG industry
Connecting gas markets. Enhancing security of supply. Preparing for a decarbonised future.
The 26th annual Flame conference will return to Amsterdam this October, offering two days of gas content alongside two days of LNG content. In addition to the physical conference, recorded and pre-recorded sessions will be made available to view on the new Flame virtual platform.
Delivered digitally and in person
At the event
Choose from a standard Flame pass, an LNG pass or an all-access ticket. Our new LNG pass gives attendees access to an extra day of LNG content taking place as part of the co-located LNGgc conference.
On demand content
New for this year, attendees will have access to a virtual event platform. The platform will contain a selection of presentations available to view on-demand, enabling you to build a flexible schedule at Flame around meetings, sessions you want to watch in real time at the live event, and those you wish to view on demand or re-watch.
Create a personalised profile before the event starts to access the full list of attendees and start to arrange appointments. Additionally, our matchmaking algorithm will recommend the best people for you to connect with based on your professional background and interests.
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 the technologies needed to decarbonise the gas system into focus, 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.
The Flame LNG pass
New for 2020, Flame attendees will have the opportunity to book on for the LNG Pass, which provides access to two days of LNG content running in tandem with the main conference. Attendees who book on for both will be able to catch up on any missed sessions using our on-demand service.
Discuss the impacts of low spot prices, the outlook for US LNG, Europe's role in the global LNG market, approaches to financing, the evolution of pricing, portfolio optimisation, the prospects for new FIDs, commoditisation and more.
Meet everyone you need to meet in the same spot.
Flame isn't a trade show, so our attendees are a select group – predominantly upper management and senior decision makers drawn from the LNG supply, utility, gas transmission, storage and shipping sectors. 2020 attendees will also gain access to our new, enhanced networking platform.
Infrastructure and investment
Discuss the impact of national policy on new pipelines, receive updates on project timelines and assess the consequences of geopolitical risk. 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 how the supply outlook, policy drivers, inter-fuel competition and new infrastructure are helping to shape the European gas 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.
