Brattle Principal Steve Levine to Speak at Law Seminars International Conference on Liquefied Natural Gas

Brattle principal Steve Levine will present at the “Natural Gas for Transportation and LNG Markets” conference, taking place July 18 – 19, 2013 in Washington, DC.

New natural gas drilling and extraction technologies have created gas surpluses in the United States, resulting in low prices, the incentive to develop new uses for this gas, and interest among producers in developing export markets. Gas liquefaction in particular, which has expanded to serve not only as a transportation fuel but also as a way to reach new industrial markets outside the pipeline grid, raises a host of regulatory issues at both the federal and state levels that must fully be understood before a potential producer can successfully enter the market. Hosted by Law Seminars International (LSI), this conference will explore how the exportation of liquefied natural gas fits into the United States’ domestic energy policy and the direction that policy likely will take.

Mr. Levine will speak on “The Shifting Global Supply and Demand Picture for Natural Gas,” and specifically developments since the early 2000s, current hot markets, and challenges in serving LNG markets.
