Russia, St. Petersburg will host the International Conference & Exhibition on Liquefied Natural Gas in 2022. The announcement was made at the opening ceremony of the LNG International Conference & Exhibition 2016 in Perth, Australia. The forum is the largest global event in the LNG sector, comparable in scale to the World Gas Conference.
The LNG International Conference & Exhibition is held every three years, alternating between producing and consuming countries. The next conference will take place in Shanghai on April 1–5, 2019.
“Russia plays an increasingly important role in the international LNG market. It is therefore quite logical that the largest international conference in the industry will take place in St. Petersburg. We are convinced that Gazprom Group’s current LNG projects will make a significant contribution to the development of global LNG trading,” said Alexander Medvedev, Deputy Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee.
The application for holding the 2022 LNG International Conference & Exhibition in St. Petersburg was submitted by Gazprom acting as a representative of the Russian Federation.
