The gas industry, like most other businesses, has been negatively affected by the global economic downturn. When will demand and prices recover? Has natural gas completely decoupled from the oil markets, and do we need so many new pipelines and more LNG infrastructure at this moment? Is it time for the industry to embrace hydrogen in response to Europes new political pledge in favour of this energy resource? These are some of the key issues which will come under focus at this panel discussion.
