Gastech 2017 – Looking Ahead

After an incredibly successful appearance at Gastech 2015 in Singapore recently, where we showcased our newly-developed range of innovative metal jacketing solutions to an excited and riveted audience, we have barely had time to unpack our suitcases before planning for Gastech 2017 begins!

The Gastech Conference & Exhibition started back in 1972, when the very first event took place in London, right here in the UK. That inaugural Gastech of 1972 was created solely to allow technical decision makers involved with LPG/LNG shipping to meet, network and share ideas - over its many subsequent years, the Conference & Exhibition has grown and evolved massively, now bringing together thousands of representatives from the spectrum of technical and commercial communities involved with the global supply chain of energy.

The event takes place every 18 months and is held at a different location each time - Gastech 2017 is scheduled from 4th April-17th April in Japan and, never slow off the mark, we have already booked our stand! Some of the reasons for choosing Japan as the location are:

  • Japan is the largest consumer market of LNG in the world (using over one-third of the entire global supply) and is a leading figure in the development and optimisation of related technology

  • The country has made sourcing alternative energy sources a national priority and seeks to obtain LNG from greenfield projects

  • Around 90 new tankers - with a value of over $19bn - will be ordered by 2020

  • Leading investors and strategists wish to secure new upstream opportunities overseas - many of these are expected to start at Gastech

In the meantime, we will continue to optimise our metal jacketing products, including SoundMet, DryMet and TedMet, discovering new ways to use the innovative technology. Oil prices continuing to fall has led to an ever-increasing drive to reduce costs and SoundMet, along with its complementary family of insulation jacketing products, offers a particularly effective way of improving performance while lowering price.
