The input that I want to make to the conference’s programme: : I would like to provide the perspective of an LNG company that is in the process of transforming its business and its assets to meet the challenges of the energy transition.
"Provide concrete solutions to meet tomorrow's challenges: plant performance, reducing methane emissions, LNG as an alternative fuel... and answering the question: what place for LNG in a world that fights climate change?"
