>PRWEB.COM Newswire

Washington, DC (PRWEB) August 24, 2011

With less than two months until the North America Gas Summit (NAGS) which will take place October 3 – 5, 2011, in Washington, DC, the Energy Exchange has today released the full agenda for this inaugural conference.

A true industry first, this unique platform will convene senior-level energy executives, regulators and thought leaders from across the entire supply chain – thus opening the dialogue between gas supply and demand - to address the latest regulatory issues shaping the future of the North American market, share best practices and discuss the impact of gas prices on shale gas development, public and media perception around hydraulic fracturing, demand creation through natural gas vehicle development and infrastructure needs, the potential of LNG exports and technology needs of liquefaction facilities, natural gas trading and pricing patterns, EPA regulations and expected outcomes of the current study undertaken, as well as the inherent realities of alternative energy.

Don’t miss the only firsthand opportunity to:

  •     Discuss the move towards a more collaborative energy future.
  •     Hear a presentation on the case study of the groundbreaking gas reserves joint venture between NW Natural and Encana.
  •     Get insights into Clean Energy Fuels Corp. - in which Chesapeake Energy recently invested $150 million - and their efforts in driving natural gas use for vehicles and improved infrastructure.
  •     Watch a premiere screening of the "Grand Energy Transition" documentary, based on the best-selling book written by Robert A. Hefner III, Owner and Founder of the GHK Company and featuring T. Boone Pickens.
  •     Attend the Gas Technology Institute (GTI) Champagne Roundtable that will discuss the implication of life cycle water management in relation to hydraulic fracturing.

In a recent interview conducted by the Energy Exchange's Director of the North America Gas Summit, Monika Gonda, Robert A. Hefner III, author and GHK Company owner and founder, lauded the event as a long overdue voice for the industry.

“We need to come together as you have organized in the North America Gas Summit, because it has got to be the entire natural gas industry that must finally come together and be sold on the development and the advantages of the transition of America to natural gas.” (To read the full interview with Mr. Hefner, please visit
