A GASTECH SPECIALIST EVENT
THE 24TH ANNUAL EUROPEAN AUTUMN GAS CONFERENCE
24-25 November 2009 • Bilbao Exhibition Centre, Bilbao, Spain
JOIN THE DEBATE: Independence and Interconnection in European Gas
he annual European Autumn Gas Conference (EAGC) is Europe’s premier event for gas industry leaders, bringing together business leaders, policymakers, strategists and traders to discuss, debate and formulate solutions to the issues affecting today’s European gas market.
Delegates will benefit from top-level networking, an opportunity to listen to and debate with the gas industry’s thought-leaders and be part of an elite group setting the agenda for the European gas business over the next few years. This year’s two-day conference is focused on ‘Independence and Interconnection in European Gas’, with a strong emphasis on trading, security of supply, renewable energy and its impact on gas, European and international projects and the effect of the global economy on the future of European gas. The highly topical programme, put together by an independent Advisory Board comprising senior members of major European gas organisations, will be looking beyond Spain and the immediate region to pan-European issues; it is its international focus and serious debate that ensures attendance at the highest level each year. Champagne roundtables, which are now synonymous with the EAGC, look in detail at current topics; and new for 2009 is the introduction of a dedicated roundtable discussion on LNG.
NATURGAS ENERGÍA SUPPORTS EAGC Naturgas Energía, one of the most significant players in the Spanish energy industry, is hosting EAGC jointly with sister company EDP Gás. “We are looking forward to welcoming the 24th edition of EAGC, one of the most important international forums for the gas industry, to Bilbao,” says Joao Manso Neto, Chairman of EDP Gás and Deputy Chairman of Naturgas Energía. “During the two day event, we will be focusing on current market issues centred around independence and interconnections within the gas industry in Europe – an important theme for Naturgas Energía in view of the Euskadour pipeline, one of the two key infrastructure projects connecting the Iberian Peninsula with the rest of Europe.”

CHAIRMAN’S WELCOME James Ball, President Director, Gas Strategies
ne year on from the realisation that the economic climate really was heading into hostile territory, a large number of the key players in Europe’s gas business are looking forward with very different plans and aspirations. Fear and hope have each flourished in that year and we look out from a very different context than that of the recent past. While many conditions are much worse, some are much better, depending on your perspective. The key executives of the European gas business, who will gather for the 24th European Autumn Gas Conference at the end of November, will be considering what has changed forever, what is probably short term discomfort or a welcome window of opportunity and how the changing organisations that will shape the future of Europe’s gas business will behave. More and more organisations driving Europe’s gas business have shifted their business models from a national focus to regional optimisation and beyond. “European” market trading is already a misnomer as the impacts of global gas sway both supply possibilities and trading choices. And while utilities diversify and extend their global footprints, the upstream majors are busy narrowing their focus. Not only a special “LNG in the Round“ session at the end of the event will consider Europe’s growing global connections, but also the panel of traders who are paying more attention to global LNG than ever before. It would have been hard enough to cope with economic uncertainty and tightened credit markets last year. But fears over security of gas supply roared back to centre stage too. Last autumn, the troubles between Russia and Ukraine were a fading memory. By winter some countries faced their worst ever gas shortages. And while many countries found open markets took them through the crisis with no disruption, political knees still jerked and panic measures were called for. EU-wide concern to make European gas supply more diverse and more secure remains high on the agenda and will be a theme of this year’s EAGC. We will be asking where the security will come from and, more importantly, who will pay for it, especially in times of falling demand?
A central part of this year’s event is a session built around an extensive survey of gas executives on their companies’ investment activities over the last year and aspirations now. Only a year ago, there was a heady confidence amongst 57% of attendees that they would be grabbing market share and seizing opportunities from the less bold. Yet the IEA says investment dropped 21% last year. Did the brave words come true for some? How much austerity set in instead? And what will happen, for what kind of player? A clutch of chiefs will decipher the results and project their own views. While times may be mixed for capital expenditure, these could be great times for optimisers and traders…if their companies have credit and the will to play the market so many banks had to abandon or scale down activity in? How have they fared and what does the coming year look like? EXECUTIVE ADVISORY BOARD We will look at the local and Spanish market, especially in light of the almost trans-European drive to push up the share of renewables This year’s programme was developed with the guidance of the Executive Advisory Board comprising some in the energy mix; is wind and rain the foe of gas as some predict, of the leading gas experts from major companies or friend as hydro and wind turbines increasingly require gas-fired throughout Europe. power to cover for the fickle swings in their energy sources? ● James Ball, President Director, Gas Strategies This year’s EAGC is in Bilbao in the Basque country of Spain ● Guy Broggi, Head of LNG Supply, Total Gas & Power on the northwest corner of the Iberian Peninsula – a market ● Ieda Gomes, Vice President New Ventures, South Asia, which is at once a gas island and a key crossroads.

The Iberian Peninsula remains one of the most diversified markets receiving gas from 10 different sources. Last year’s expansion in the number of terminals, storage tanks and gas emission capacities along with ongoing initiatives (Medgaz project) and the short and medium term forecasting of the development of connections in Europe through the north of Pyrenees (Euskadour project), draws a picture of the Spanish gas system which is seeking a target for expansion but also to increase security of supply, both within the peninsula and within Europe. As for supply, regasification plants, as well as Spanish legislation, which promotes diversification by setting a natural gas maximum rating of 50% from the same country, are the key points that have enabled our country to remain outside the crisis in Europe created by the Russian gas supply.

14:00 –15:30 Session 3A (Panel) – TRADED MARKETS TODAY: IN, OUT, SHAKE IT ALL ABOUT
14:00–15:30 Session 3B – RENEWABLES: FRIEND, FOE OR BED FELLOWS?
Views of the future state of the global economy have gone from a forward slash future to an L shaped, then a W and now seem to be settling on a V shaped recovery. Commodity markets went into freefall last year as the full impact of the financial crisis started to affect the wider economy. Demand collapsed, and with it prices. New supply projects were cancelled, delayed or are being renegotiated. But the longer term fundamentals in many commodity markets have not gone away, with supply issues threatening already to rear their ugly heads again, leading to a gradual recovery in prices. The exception is Natural Gas…. …in some cases. And the cause of this is a breakthrough in technology to economically extract unconventional gas which has flooded the North American gas markets. Now pundits are telling us that there is a paradigm-changing technological breakthrough and unconventional gas will result in cheap gas forever. Very unlikely. The details will change, but gravity and greed will ensure that the broad business model will always survive. Nonetheless, the North American gas market is still flooded and cheap. The drilling decline will eventually raise prices, but world LNG’s great gas sink is no longer so attractive. So here we are in Europe surrounded by pipeline gas and yet increasingly concentrating on world LNG and US rig rates; dealing with the effect of all this inevitably leading to long lasting changes in the gas industry. The LNG industry has turned from being a total sellers’ market, concentrated in the Pacific basin to one which is far more balanced between buyers and sellers, and with an increasing focus on the Atlantic basin and short term transactions into liquid, tradeable markets. The long anticipated Atlantic convergence between North West European prices and Henry Hub has largely occurred, and this is before the new liquefaction destined for the spot markets and the associated regasification facilities have even got into full swing. The next few years are likely to see the industry having to adapt the way LNG portfolios are optimised and managed. The skills, competencies and relationships required to effectively manage an Atlantic basin LNG business are vastly different to the traditional Pacific basin LNG business, and we already see significantly different approaches and business models. The LNG world is today moving towards a bifurcated model, in which a significant portion of the industry is adamant that it will not, or can not, change, and the rest entering into a world of regas slot options, transatlantic spread options, index swaps, time spread hedging (now that the contango justifies floating storage again) to name but a few. This session will explore some of the dynamics of the new LNG industry when it starts interfacing with liquid, wholesale markets. We will hear from a wide cross section of companies who are at the forefront of the changes occurring.
Some opinion leaders and energy stakeholders had identified fossil fuels as the main competitor for the development of renewable energies or, from the other point of view, had announced that the success of renewable technologies was the main threat for the coal and natural gas markets. But the fact is, that so far, real experiences have shown the synergies and mutual benefits between renewable installations and, specifically, natural gas availability for electricity generation. Spain is probably one of the best examples for this integration of renewable sources and natural gas in the same electric system. The success story of the renewable energies in Spain for the last 10 years have been complemented and supported by the unprecedented increase in the number of Combined cycle power plants using natural gas. As a result, the unpredictability or non-continuity of wind and sun are being backed by the flexibility of combined cycle plants, and natural gas infrastructures have benefited from great developments supported by the increase in renewable installed power. In this session, the TSOs of the natural gas system (Enagas) and the electricity grids (Red Eléctrica) will present their views on this issue, explaining how this interoperation between natural gas and renewable energy affect their daily operation and the guarantee of supply as well as the pros and cons. To visualize the whole picture, energy companies will show why and how they are including in their electricity generation mix both renewable sources and natural gas as key strategic investments for their business.

15:30–16:00 Refreshment Break 16:00–17:15 Session 4 – THE STATE OF GAS INVESTMENT The global economic and financial crisis has led to falling stock market prices, weakened energy demand and lower oil and gas prices. Energy investment has dropped dramatically world wide. According to the IEA oil and gas budgets for 2009 have already been cut by 21% (circa $100 billion) when compared to 2008; a total of 20 large scale upstream projects worth $170 billion have been cancelled and another 35 projects have been postponed by 18 months. All combined this will cancel or postpone 30 bcma of future gas supply. So far in 2009 no LNG project has been granted final investment decision. Projects with high marginal costs and long lead times were the one that suffered most particularly in non-OPEC countries. The huge uncertainty on when the economy and energy demand will pick up again combined with the squeeze on capital availability is impacting long term investment decisions for oil and gas companies. Although it is very difficult to predict the future right now, it is certain that in the long term the world will face gas supply constraints again reflecting the ongoing cuts in investment. This panel aims to debate the following questions: • What are the long term prospects for gas supply and demand in Europe in the face of the present investment decisions? • What is the short and long term investment strategy for IOCs and NOCs and Utilities in E&P which will impact European supply? • How is the economic crisis impacting investment in European infrastructure? • What is the role of Government and the private sector in ensuring that long term security of supply will not suffer from short term decisions?

Session 5 – REINFORCING SECURITY AND DIVERSIFICATION OF SUPPLY IN TIMES OF UNCERTAIN EUROPEAN DEMAND While Europe is facing the most uncertain gas demand outlook in decades, where the paradigm of unlimited growth in consumption is challenged by a mix of crisis-induced demand destruction, advances in other energy sources and both current and mandated improvements in efficiency of energy use, it is at the same time of the highest importance to pursue new projects allowing both an increase in overall volume availability and the development of new routes and / or sources, able to restore confidence in security of gas supply; this has been severely shaken by growing concerns about a future “gas crisis” affecting the whole Continent. This session will examine, in the words of the very players involved, the status of some of the most relevant of such projects, to better understand how they fit into such new market reality and what role they can actually play for further reinforcement and diversification of the European gas market.

For this session, we will change the format with all participants seated ‘in the round’ facing the issues together, facilitated by a panel of key players leading off the discussion. Global LNG is changing the face of gas markets worldwide. After more than 30 years of unabated development, the LNG industry is now in a position to change the worldwide background of the main natural gas markets in America, Europe and Asia. We are currently witnessing a pause in such development in the Atlantic basin while Asia is furbishing its weapons of massive LNG development with Australia as the new focus in a role comparable to the one Qatar just played 10 years ago. How the gas industry is swallowing the current depression in demand and prices in the various areas of the world has to do with what was achieved by Qatar, Yemen, etc and what will be achieved when Australia eventually wakes-up. To talk about the future consequences of the new supply wave, what is maturing in Australia, and the state of the world markets, representatives from Japanese Buyers, IOCs already involved in the global LNG scene and European actors will gather for the LNG roundtable, to debate and to give their respective points of view on the day.
