The presentation, entitled "Middle East Gas Landscape - the Reality Behind the Veil" will raise some of the issues faced by the gas supply and consuming nations of the Middle East. Though the region is blessed with enormous reserves, the disparity between the 'haves' and the 'have-nots' raises issues about the future sustainability of the economic growth experienced in the region - growth largely fuelled on the promise of cheap energy. Obstacles to future growth as well as challenges faced by consumers will be discussed. The choices faced by resource holders of the region - exporting valuable LNG vs supplying cheaper pipeline gas to neighbouring markets - has similarities to the current Asian gas environment. A lively discussion following the presentation is expected.
