Baker Botts Investigates LNG Market Dynamics and Hosts Regas Masterclass at World LNG Summit

Media Alert
LONDON, 20 November, 2017 - Baker Botts, L.L.P., a leading international law firm, announced today that three partners from its highly influential LNG Projects Practice will be taking part in the CWC 18th Annual World LNG Summit at the Epic Sana Lisboa Hotel in Lisbon, Portugal from Tuesday, 28 November to Friday, 1 December 2017.

The World LNG Summit brings together over 500 global LNG leaders to keep up to date with the latest LNG industry developments, explore new global trends, complete deals and shape forward-thinking client strategies.

“LNG will continue to reach new markets as prices remain low, and we’re pleased to share our insights with likeminded professionals given the changing market dynamics and explore new trends. LNG business operating models are rapidly transforming to optimise supply, improve costs and manage the risks in LNG projects. Floating storage and regasification technology is key to facilitating the set-up of low cost import infrastructure in new countries, and analysts predict that by 2022, 20% of global LNG import capacity will come from floating LNG, as it is much quicker to set-up and easier to deploy these regas projects,” said Steven Miles, Partner and Head of the LNG Practice at Baker Botts.

Program Highlights
