2011 Pacific Energy Summit

World leaders in science, policy, and industry convened in Jakarta, Indonesia, on February 21–23, 2011, to discuss the topic “Unlocking the Potential of Natural Gas in the Asia-Pacific” at the 2011 Pacific Energy Summit. Taking place over the course of three days in a personal and interactive environment, the Summit prompted frank, pragmatic, and forward-looking discussions to address four core foci:

  • Natural gas as an energy source for transitioning to a low-carbon economy
  • The potentially growing role of natural gas to meet rising energy demand, as an increasingly abundant resource
  • The fiscal, regulatory, and legal steps Asia-Pacific nations must take to ensure adequate natural gas supplies alongside the investment, infrastructure, and planning needed to unlock the potential of an abundant resource
  • Current and projected domestic natural gas markets, how to support the development of greater demand for natural gas, particularly in the power sector
