While the region represents significant untapped potential for energy production and demand, Latin America and the Caribbean have a complex relationship with natural gas. Potential resources must be harnessed so the region may further capitalize on its strong economic growth profile. LGC 2018 will provide a voice to national, multilateral and private institutions in order to enable the regulatory framework and technical conditions required to facilitate a structured gas market. The unprecedented shale revolution in the USA and the speed of new investment into LNG export facilities has changed the face of global energy markets. With the LNG market likely to be over supplied in coming years, engaging with emerging markets like those represented in Latin America and the Caribbean should be fundamental to a successful commercial strategy for any business.
