Day two of the Europe Conference 2018 begins in Amsterdam this morning, with Distributive LNG in focus.

More than 150 delegates from 23 countries have gathered at the Beurs van Berlage Conference Centre – a defining landmark in the historic city centre of Amsterdam, which used to hold the Dutch Stock Exchange – for the event, which yesterday discussed and debated the Hydrogen Economy.

Almost 100% of the discussion at conferences and events, and general business activity, related to natural gas is geared to sources, pipelines, LNG liquefiers, terminals, re-gasification and geo-political issues influencing the industry. There is very little coverage or discussion on Distributive LNG – that is LNG delivered by road, rail or ISO container.

The drive and necessity of liquefying natural gas in order to move the energy vector around the world has raised growth opportunities within the industrial gas and equipment sector – especially related to the technological synergies between LNG and cryogenic industrial gases. It has even led to some gas companies exploring or moving into the supply chain.

Picking up the baton of the clean energy transition, day two of the event will focus on all aspects of Distributive LNG – from transport and storage technologies, to the latest natural gas filling stations and remote/stranded end-user locations. It will also debate who should be ‘playing’ in this business.


gasworld’s new Publishing Director Martyn Hammond will open day two followed by the official Keynote Address from Johann Knijp, Country Manager for DNV GL Oil & Gas in the Netherlands.

The event’s theme of Positioning Today for Tomorrow’s Opportunities will continue to be discussed and debated through presentations from:

  • · Edgar Kuipers, Investment Director – Broadview Energy Solutions
  • · Jan van Houwenhove, Owner – Cryo Advise bvba
  • · Samuel Zouaghi, President – Cryostar SAS
  • · Zdenek Machala, Projects Director – Chart Ferox
  • · Rob Cockerill, Global Managing Editor – gasworld
  • · Brice Lemaire, Europe Sales Manager - ACD
  • · Eike Doelschner, Chief Technology Officer – Herose
