Special MESSAGE from Daniel Yergin
I’m very pleased to extend many congratulations to the 10th annual LNG Producer-Consumer Conference. Recent events continue to demonstrate the importance and timeliness of this conference. One of the themes of my new book, “The New Map”, is that cooperation and collaboration and mutual understanding is the foundation of the global LNG business, which each year becomes more and more important. This conference embodies that foundation. LNG peak will be sometime after 2050, and remains a very important growth business. Our new IHS market study shows the role of gas in net zero, drawing some important conclusions for LNG. Many congratulations to METI for its leadership in convening this conference, which plays such an important role in the essential communication among producers and consumers through the market cycles.

Vice chairman of IHS Markit, Pulitzer Prize winner by The Prize: The Epic Quest For Oil, Money & Power,and author of the new book, The New Map: Energy, Climate, and the Clash of Nations
