The World Gas Conference is the most important global gas industry gathering of influential leaders, policy-makers, buyers, sellers and experts. Conducted since 1931 by the International Gas Union (IGU), the triennial event aims to raise the voice of natural gas while offering timely updates on strategic, commercial and technical issues facing the entire gas value chain.
The 27th World Gas Conference (WGC 2018) took place in Washington DC from June 25-29, offering the most comprehensive and diverse program to date and featuring over 600 of the natural gas industry’s most senior speakers from all over the world.
