In a statement announcing the postponement, event organizer dmg events said the collective decision was based on concerns around the global pandemic, including the wellbeing of all attendees.
Gastech 2020 was due to take place in Singapore this September, with the 2021 event now to take place in the same location.
dmg events Vice President Energy Nick Ornstien said the postponement gives the gas, LNG and wider energy industries greater scope to assess the COVID-19 impact on energy demand and identify market growth opportunities as the world moves towards a carbon neutral energy landscape.
“Gastech has a proven power to convene energy policy makers and industry leaders, which will be crucial as economies recover and demand for gas increases, post COVID-19,” said Mr Ornstien.
“Gastech 2021 will help shape a roadmap for collective and individual actions and provide opportunities to identify future solutions and strategies.”
The Gastech 2020 conference, without the exhibition, will still take place virtually in September with its strategic and technical content streamed online.
Gastech will additionally produce a series of webinars, industry newsletters and unique networking opportunities in the lead up to next year’s in-person event.
