New Speakers Confirmed for Canadian Gas Dialogues 2020

Sponsored by:     Media Partner: 


The Canadian Gas Dialogues conference is designed to bring together the spectrum of stakeholders in the natural gas community for the exchange and sharing of insight and viewpoints on how we can collectively move forward the position of the industry in local, national and global communities. 

In 2019 more than 140 Canadian gas industry executives, consultants, managers and other stakeholders participated in Natural Gas World’s inaugural Canadian Gas Dialogues conference April 23 in Calgary. Structured around four panels, the conference explored major issues impacting the Canadian gas industry: public perception of the industry, domestic and export markets for its product, and regulatory forces that are reshaping how – and even if – the industry can move forward. And a luncheon panel explored what can arguably be characterised as the biggest success story in the Canadian gas industry since the nation–building TransCanada pipeline system was built in the 1950s: the decision by the LNG Canada partnership to commit to building its $40bn liquefaction terminal and pipeline on Canada’s west coast.
