What is the European Gas Conference?

The European Gas Conference (EGC) is the most important, geopolitical discussion in the midstream gas calendar.

With Europe’s main supplier, Gazprom and hosts OMV officially supporting the gathering, EGC is the perfect opportunity to be with the most senior gas decision-makers in the European market.

  • Adapting to the outcome of Gazprom-Naftogaz transit negotiations
  • Increasing number of projects reaching FID and LNG supply arriving to Europe
  • LNG trading in a commoditised market
  • Putting gas on the map post-Madrid Forum: Bridging relationships between the industry and European Commission
