Top Industry Regulators and Executives to Speak at Hart Energy’s North American LNG Exports Conference

The 2014 North American LNG Exports conference delivers world-class speakers and a comprehensive focus on LNG export projects from the United States, Canada and Mexico. The conference, part of Hart Energy’s recent acquisition of Zeus Intelligence, will be held November 20-21, 2014, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Houston.

Throughout North America, 40 proposed LNG export projects represent billions of dollars in potential investment and an added 412 million tons of annual LNG export capacity. With half of the proposed projects, the Gulf Coast remains the focal point for export plant development. Still, key regions in Canada and along the U.S. East Coast are quickly emerging as strong contenders.

Which proposed projects will move forward? How will North America’s exports address fierce competition for global LNG markets?

North American LNG Exports 2014 will address these critical questions and more. The expert speaker slate includes:
