FUTURE ENERGY ASIA
Discussing the energy challenges facing the region
THAILAND’S GAS DEMAND is driven by population and economic growth, and an increased use in transport, petrochemical feedstock and electricity generation.
About two thirds of Thailand’s electricity is produced from gas. As a result, the country has become increasingly dependent on market imports as public opinion continues to favour gas-fired power plants, despite domestic gas fields continuing to deplete.
With a combined output of 2.2 billion cubic feet per day, the country’s largest gas fields are the Chevron operated Erawan field and PTT’s Bongkok.
The auction for the renewal of these licenses, due to expire in 2022-2023, commenced in 2018 with the winners to be announced in Q4. Future Energy Asia’s strategic conference will discuss important topics such as these and the wider energy challenges facing the region.
Future Energy Asia Exhibition & Conference is an annual event held in Bangkok, Thailand that is dedicated to advancing future energy solutions for the region. Future Energy Asia promises to bring together the complete energy value chain in one unique meeting place and is the perfect platform to foster a secure, affordable and low-carbon energy mix across Asia.
Future Energy Asia 2018 is a collaborative effort showcasing Thailand’s Integrated Energy Blueprint, positioning Thailand as a sustainable energy hub for Asia. The transition towards “Thailand 4.0” and a valuebased economy makes Bangkok the perfect location to advocate the future for the wider region’s harmonious fuel mix.
Join us at Future Energy Asia where we will bring together the industry leaders shaping the region’s energy policy.
