U.S. Congress, Government and Oil & Gas Leaders will share their leadership experience at the Washington Oil & Gas Forumon June 8th & 9th, at the Cosmos Club (2121 Massachusetts Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20008).

JOIN the most influential oil & gas forum in Washington, DC to gain strategic market insight on the latest upstream and midstream developments and investment opportunities.

This year’s focus is on the international impact of US LNG exports. The surge in the US natural gas production opens up new opportunities in the  trade relations between the United States and its trading partners. The Forum brings together international oil and gas leaders and government decision makers to promote commercial agreements in the American oil and gas industry.

During the two days Forum the following questions will be addressed:

-Where will US LNG be exported: to Asian or European markets?
-How will US LNG diversify the European gas suppliers?
-What are the geopolitical implications of US LNG and Shale Gas?
-What are the implications to Eastern Mediterranean Gas?
