Owned by the International Gas Union (IGU) since 1931, WGC2022 continues to thrive with the tremendous support from the Government of Korea, Daegu Metropolitan City, the National Organising Committee, hosted by the Korea Gas Union and host partner KOGAS.

With 12,000 estimated attendees set to visit WGC2022, the industry will embark on a journey to discuss the core theme of the triennial conference A Sustainable Future Powered by Gas and promote the role of natural gas in a greener future. The programme will look at tackling critical issues in the global energy discussion such as meeting increasing demand by improving accessibility and availability, enhancing affordability while lowering greenhouse gas emissions and improving air quality.

“In the last few months, we have been actively building a pioneering program incorporating strategy, collaboration and innovation in the sustainable energy future,” said Bong Kyu Park, Chairman of the National Organising Committee for WGC2022. “The industry has made great achievements despite unprecedented challenges and WGC2022 in May 2022 will be the perfect platform to reconnect and share our experiences, discuss these exciting opportunities on energy transitions, the latest innovations and technical forces shaping the evolution of the gas and energy industry.”

The WGC2022 programme will discuss the different perspectives and insights under the event theme and examine the ever-evolving gas industry across the globe. The Current Debates agenda explores the impact of Covid-19 on future energy demand, the state of global climate action under the Net-Zero Challenge, global liquefied natural gas (LNG) market dynamics, the continuing role of new technologies to meet decarbonization goals and more.

The latest Call for Papers session topics will uncover policy and financing to support continued investment in developing economies and examine the opportunities for the industry to adopt business models that advocate decarbonization and net-zero emissions. Submissions for the Call for Papers close on 27 September 2021.
