10:00 – 12:00 | Hall G

Small-scale LNG internationalisation

From being a phenomenon limited to individual countries and regions, small-scale LNG for land, sea and other direct uses is now a global industrial supply chain. Growth in consumption consolidates the relationship between big LNG and small-scale LNG. New challenges also for the regulation of the sector worldwide as the commitment on climate change grows. Prospects for ECA areas. The vision of international associations. Global business and investment strategies.

12:15 – 13:00 | Hall G

Financial and economic trends

The price development of small-scale LNG in the main consumption areas. The relationship between costs and revenues, the weight of logistics. The economic value of lower environmental impact, considering the direct use of LNG and bio-LNG. The vision of investors and financial analysts. European economic recovery and the National Recovery and Resilience Plans.

14:00 – 16:30 | Hall G

BioGNL, the game changer

The direct uses of fossil-based LNG, which already guarantee the best environmental and climate performance by 2030, implemented by the use of bio-LNG will meet the 2050 targets. The speed of bio-LNG production growth now requires supranational rules for market development, transparency and guarantee of origin.

15:30 – 18:00 | Scalo San Donato Bologna

Unveiling of the first LNG-bioLNG train

Invitation-only event by Fondazione FS, Snam, Hitachi Rail

16:30 – 18.00 | Hall G

Environmental and climatic vocations

Natural gas in global environmental policies and its impact on small-scale LNG. The progression of ECA areas. Not only bio-LNG: synthetic gases, fuel cells and other solutions. LNG as a precursor for the introduction of new fuels. Competition/coexistence with hydrogen and ammonia. The emission credit system. Methane emissions issue in the process of being resolved.
