Receive a Case Study on the Forthcoming Nord Stream 2 Project at SMi's 10th Annual Gas Storage and Transmissions Conference


Discuss the role that Gas Storage and Transmissions has to play in safeguarding the EU's security of energy supply, and how regulators are rejuvenating this dynamic market.

London, United Kingdom, May 11, 2016 --(PR.com)-- The completion of the North Stream-2 gas pipeline will strengthen energy security in Europe, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said. "This is a commercial agreement based on expert prognoses on the growth in gas consumption in Europe. We are sure that the completion will provide for an increase in the stability of delivering gas to the European market and strengthening energy security on our common continents as a whole," Lavrov said in an interview with Italy's Limes monthly magazine. The Nord Stream 2 is a proposed gas pipeline that would pass under the Baltic Sea, bypassing Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia and Poland, to provide an additional route for Russian gas to be delivered to Germany. The pipeline could provide up to 55 billion cubic meters of direct gas supplies from Russia.

Against this backdrop, SMi's 10th annual Gas Storage and Transmissions conference, taking place on 15-16 June 2016 in London, UK, will provide the ideal platform to discuss the role storage and transmissions can play in safeguarding the EU's security of energy supply, in addition to the role regulators have to play in rejuvenating this dynamic market. Case studies will be provided on current and future infrastructural developments across Europe, including the Turkish, Nord and South Streams and the forthcoming Nord Stream 2 project. The two-day event will assess whether diversifying gas supply routes and new interconnector projects can meet the growing need for natural gas imports in Europe as production in the North Sea continues to fall.
