Opportune EMEA’s Transaction Services Lead Featured in Addleshaw Goddard’s ‘The Future of Gas’
Commentary by Mauro Fiorucci in Addleshaw Goddard’s Future of Gas Report
This week, Opportune EMEA’s Transaction services lead, Mauro Fiorucci participated in a panel discussion on the future of gas at a special event organized by Addleshaw Goddard and Newsbase for the launch of the Future of Gas Report where Opportune was featured as a main contributor.
It is clear both from the report and from the outputs of this week’s discussion that gas is set to play a significant role in meeting the world’s energy needs and carbon reduction targets.
The report itself takes a critical look at the role of gas, drawing out what lies on the horizon for this key source of heat and energy, as governments, energy companies and consumers focus on the “Energy Trilemma” of affordable, sustainable and secure supplies.
In the face of cheap but polluting coal and burgeoning but intermittent renewables, the future of gas in the UK and beyond has never been so fundamental. The report surmises that the opportunities are plentiful, stemming from new demand and climate change objectives, and driven by exploration successes as well as a changing attitude among investors.
The future of gas is written in the present. Choices taken now, by investors and governments, will dictate supply and demand over the next 10 years. Click below to download the full report.
