2018 world gas conference

natural gas for the long term

In his keynote address at the World Gas Conference, Chairman and CEO Mike Wirth expressed an optimistic view of natural gas and liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the future energy landscape. Held from June 25 to June 29 in Washington, D.C., the World Gas Conference is the largest global gas industry gathering of influential leaders, policy-makers, buyers, sellers and experts.

Addressing the conference’s theme of “Fueling the Future,” Wirth focused on how the energy industry can make a major contribution to reducing energy poverty, expanding global economic growth and promoting greater geopolitical stability.

"Natural gas underpins our energy future. By every objective measure, there is no practical solution to resolving energy poverty that doesn’t include a significant role for natural gas."

Mike Wirth
Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer

He also shared perspectives on the partnerships and innovation that will be required in today’s energy transition – especially with organizations that are pushing the boundaries of technology.

“Delivering on the future of energy will require massive private sector investments in sustaining current energy supplies while at the same time identifying new solutions.”
