SMi are pleased to present their 6th annual gas storage conference, 2011 has been a busy year for those involved in gas storage and this informative 2 day conference will allow recent developments and operations to be discussed in the context of a shifting global energy market. Global gas storage projects will provide a vital resource throughout the year and will play a central role in helping to provide secure gas supplies, however will regulation and the current economic climate affect the future of this industry?

The UK is in need of increased gas storage volumes to smooth out sudden demands in supply during, for example, cold spells or if daily supplies are lost due to technical difficulties or other reasons.

Storage also has economic importance in that gas does not have to be bought during the main winter periods or at times of high demand when it is more expensive.

Recent development of unconventional gas resources are driving the need for more storage capacity worldwide, and as a result research is being conducted to identify new efficient and economical methods of gas storage. With increasing pressures on the energy market and focus on energy prices, gas storage is facing new challenges to increase efficiency and capacity throughout the seasons. Gas Storage facilities are necessary to maintain a steady supply during changing patterns of demand and allows for countries to rely less on importing gas during times of demand.Confirmed Speakers include:
