Conference Description:

The energy security of the UKs gas has been maintained despite liberalisation and a shift from indigenous supplies to a significant reliance on gas imports. However, both Government and market participants have voiced concerns that Britain is becoming increasingly exposed to supply security incidents, whilst the measures to mitigate such events have lagged behind. The masterclass will take attendees through the key national and global factors impacting on gas security of supply, the role of recent initiatives such as Ofgems Gas Security of Supply Significant Code Review, the potential for new gas storage investments and the obstacles that need to be overcome.
