EnergyNet today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the International Gas Union (IGU) to promote gas investments through the creation of the major annual gas investors summit ‘Latin America & Caribbean Gas Conference’, taking place in Mexico from the 9-11 October 2018.
As the largest natural gas organization in the world, IGU’s members include industry associations and corporations representing 97% of the world gas market. A non-profit company, IGU’s mission is to defend gas as an integral part of a sustainable global energy system, promoting the political, technical and economic progress of the industry.

Today marks a new phase for the IGU in promoting natural gas development through this strategic alliance with EnergyNet Ltd. and with the support of ARPEL, the leading gas association for Latin America and the Caribbean, will see strengthened partnerships with stakeholders across the region.
“The Latin America and Caribbean Gas Conference is the vehicle that the IGU has structured with the objective of promoting the development of gas markets, their integration at the regional level, and its contribution to sustainable energy policies and the growth of the economies of the region,” commented Luis Bertran, Secretary General of the IGU.

The alliance between IGU and EnergyNet provides the energy ecosystem of Latin America and the Caribbean with a unique platform to meet EPCs, OEMs, IOCs, NOCs and service providers across the whole supply chain through this important energy-focused investment summit.
EnergyNet Ltd. organises a global portfolio of investment meetings focused on the power & electricity sectors across Africa and Latin America. For the last 25 years, EnergyNet has worked in Europe, the USA, China and across Africa and Latin America to facilitate summits where international investors can build relationships with credible public sector stakeholders.
These two organisations share the objective of accelerating the development of the gas industry in Latin America and the Caribbean, addressing the bottlenecks in the different regional gas markets and promoting business solutions for them.
"This partnership is important for investors in the region, as it will shape the thinking of major players at a time when gas is seen as a responsible energy source, as well as an enabler of renewable energy and deeper economic development for these powerful growing economies," commented Simon Gosling, Managing Director of EnergyNet.
