Working Group: Energy
The Working Group Energy is one of the biggest and most active Working Groups with around 40 companies and institutions from 20 countries attending.
- The Working Group Energy set up 2 Sub-Groups:
- Natural Gas Markets
- Investment in Oil and Gas
The meetings, which are held about once per quarter and are usually hosted by a member company, are characterized by a cooperative and constructive atmosphere, which enables the Working Group to easily focus on major problems that regard the energy sector throughout the entire European area.
Dominating topics have been the liberalisation of the natural gas markets in Europe, the development of gas supplies to Europe as well as the development of the respective transport infrastructure, and new markets for natural gas as well as the prospects for developing the great resources of the oil and gas sector in the Russian Federation and in Central Asia.
Frequently guest speakers are invited to the meetings to report on recent developments in the energy markets. Examples being, Gazprom export reporting on the market prospective of Russian gas to China, and E.ON Global Commodities, Gaz de France and Accenture reporting on developments on the LNG-Market, or Marine Service reporting on the latest development in LNG-shipping. Also it has become common practice that member companies report on joint projects they are developing, e.g. E.ON Global Commodities, Wintershall and PJSC Gazprom on the joint project Nord Stream in the Baltic Sea.
At the end of each meeting the respective Sub-Group Coordinator summarizes the results of the meeting and if appropriate, formulates messages which can be conveyed to the Presiding Committee of the IBC as basis for formal statements of the IBC. Both the Summaries and/or Messages to the Presiding Committee and the Presentations of the Working Group's Meetings are published on this Website and can be found under the section "Publications".
You are cordially invited to join the Working Group Energy and to play a part in our circle. Please contact for any further information
