U.S. - Americas LNG Forum

23 May

FGV Energia and the US Government in Brazil are proud to launch the First US-Americas LNG Forum, an event that, for the first time, connected the LNG players of the Western Hemisphere.

Participants received, at first hand, valuable market information on US LNG exports and trends in the natural gas sector.

The event also provided an excellent networking opportunity with American LNG exporters and LNG Infrastructure Specialists.

This is a must-see event for those seeking to participate in the discussions on the natural gas and energy security market, as well as being in contact with important representatives of LNG follow-up.
