FT European Gas Summit

Oct 23, 2014
from 08:00 AM to 05:35 PM



Europe faces significant energy challenges. High energy prices-in part a factor of dwindling indigenous resources and growing import dependency-are damaging economic prospects of the region, particularly at a time when a shale boom has transformed the competitiveness of the region’s main trading partner, the US. Diversifying the portfolio of suppliers, particularly of gas, is seen as vital to the region’s future.
