The North American Export Coal & Gas Summit returns to San Francisco to provide expert guidance on business success in the changing markets for U.S. coal and LNG exports.

With the advent of the Shale Gale, coal and LNG have been viewed as competing fuel both within North America and globally. But are they competitors or colleagues as global markets balance decarbonization with economic electrification? Asia Pacific LNG demand is forecast to grow by 50% over the next decade contributing half of all global demand growth. Globally, over 230 MMtpa of LNG capacity and over 200 GW of new coal fired power generation is expected to be built over the next decade. Global markets for both coal and LNG appear to be marching towards greater commoditization and competition. Are there similarities and lessons to be learned from each or is coal so much less fungible than natural gas that it trades differently?

At the North American Export Coal and Gas Summit industry experts will examine and give their perspectives on these topics as well as discuss the markets, projects, challenges and strategies buyers and sellers need to know to successfully manage their businesses in the rapidly changing global coal and LNG industries.

Why hold a coal and gas export conference?

Many view coal and gas as competitors, but as global markets for both fuels grow, and as North America becomes a significant supplier, those markets will continue to commoditize presenting new challenges and new opportunities. This video highlights the topics, panels and experts that will provide you with insight to leverage opportunities in the evolving global coal and LNG markets.

Meet the challenges of an evolving coal market

To maintain healthy volumes in 2020, U.S. coal exporters must meet the challenges of low international prices, global trade disputes, cracks in demand outside China and weakness in the Atlantic region. Meanwhile, global coal producers struggle to respond to high prices with increased production. How will these dynamics transpire going forward? This event will help answer these critical questions:

  • How will the resolution of the U.S.-China trade dispute affect U.S. coal and LNG exports?
  • Will U.S. high-sulfur coal become a major component in the Turkish coal mix, or will the trade conflict between the two countries linger?
  • Can U.S. coal become a significant supplier of high-calorie coal to the Indian electricity generation mix, in addition to India’s industrial market?
  • How much room is there for further expansion of the Canadian coking coal industry?
  • What developments in infrastructure and transportation might improve the reach of U.S. coal into the global marketplace?
Keep pace in a rapidly expanding LNG market

North American LNG exports are expected to almost double over the next three years, as the “Shale Gale” goes global. While this should drive down prices, North American gas supply is increasingly driven by an inverse price relationship between Henry Hub and West Texas Intermediate. How do buyers and sellers navigate in a global gas market experiencing such massive change and growth? Our speakers will address that primary concern and more:

  • How quickly will a spot LNG market develop? What are the missing ingredients?
  • What’s the outlook for Asia-Pacific demand?
  • How do Asian buyers feel about North American price risk vs oil indexation?
  • Can pipeline capacity meet feed gas needs? What are the development models for the next wave of projects?
  • What are the supply strategies to mitigate price risk from volatility in North American markets?
