He will be discussing how countries can meet the rapidly expanding energy demand to ensure economic growth and assuage the associated environmental impact, the considerations for securing the required types of energy and supply routes, and the role of LNG to the energy industry and how it can be further developed.

The Asia Pacific region is emerging as a source for natural gas, with reserves found in Australia, China, Indonesia and others. Natural gas is increasingly being considered as the fuel of choice for the near future, as it is less polluting than oil and coal.
