The LDC Gas Forum Southeast Occurs April 12-14, 2023 at the Westin Harbor Golf Resort & Spa

Energy transition and offering lower carbon energy products to natural gas markets in the Southeast U.S. are the focus of a meeting of four hundred industry decision-makers in April.

Houston, TX, March 29, 2023 --( The 23rd Annual LDC Gas Forum Southeast in April takes place in Savannah, GA - the premier event where participants meet to gain insight, analyze, and structure arrangements to buy, sell and transport natural gas.

Four hundred energy industry professionals convene in April to gain insight and conduct analysis of up to the minute issues facing the southeast U.S. natural gas market region. The 23rd Annual LDC Gas Forum Southeast takes place April 12 – 14, in Savannah, GA. This is the industry’s premier gathering for natural gas industry professionals, which is much more than simply a conference, with participants routinely negotiating transactions during the event.

The Program for this year’s event is packed with relevant critical issues that natural gas market stakeholders are facing across the value chain. A key theme across the agenda is Energy Transition - addressing the trilemma challenge of security of supply, affordability, and offering lower carbon energy alternatives (RSG, CNG, RNG, etc.). In addition, standard LDC Gas Forum topics will be addressed, including market fundamentals, supply capabilities, midstream infrastructure updates, end user perspectives and latest policy/regulatory diagnosis. All this against a backdrop of commercial operations involving producing, transporting, and selling natural gas.

Beyond these overarching topics, the Southeast U.S. region brings its own unique issues. Population growth is stretching demand, particularly for power generation. LNG Exports, primarily from U.S. Gulf Coast liquefaction facilities is competing for supply from production regions traditionally serving Southeast markets. Midstream infrastructure expansions face fierce resistance, resulting in bottlenecks and basis price anomalies.

The convergence of these market conditions translates into potential for volatility and the need for informed decisions on structuring commercial arrangements into the future.

The content/discussion program of the LDC Gas Forum Southeast consists of 2 ½ days of keynote presentations, and moderated panels. Keynote addresses include: Rick Smead, Managing Director, Advisory Services, RBN Energy; Rob Wilson, VP, Analytics, East Daley Analytics; Paul De Moudt, General Manager, North America, Shell LNG Marketing & Trading; Mark Aufmuth, Managing Director, Low Carbon & Cross Commodity Origination, bp; Allen Capps, Senior Vice President & Chief Commercial Officer, Gas Transmission and Midstream, Enbridge; John Olshefski, SVP Customer Care, Huntsville Utilities; and Dr. Peter Barber, Director of RNG Business Development,SeekOps Inc.

The Program also includes five moderated Panel discussions addressing a variety of timely topics, with well-qualified industry experts, including representatives from: Cleveland Advisory;; Context Labs; ConocoPhillips; Huntsville Utilities; Southern Company Gas; Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia; PBF Energy; BHE GT&S; CB&I Storage Solutions – McDermott; Cashman Preload Cryogenics; Galileo Technologies US; REV LNG; Kinder Morgan; NRG - Direct Energy; Gas South; Project Canary; EarnDLT; Southern Gas Association; Coalition For Renewable Natural Gas; American Public Gas Association; Loftin Public Affairs / Natural Gas association of Georgia.

This Forum focuses on southeast U.S. natural gas markets, while five other LDC Gas Forums throughout the year address other key regions and market segments across the continent.
