MG 7 Oil and Gas Team attends Natural Gas Summit 2014

The Market Group (MG) 7 Oil and Gas Team attended the recently concluded Natural Gas Summit 2014 held on 12-13 March at the New World Hotel, Makati City, Philippines. The Summit, which was aptly themed “Driving Growth in the Philippines: A Policy and Business Dialogue on LNG and Natural Gas,” expanded the original scope of the first policy dialogue held last March 2013 and included the analysis of business needs and challenges for the development of a dynamic Philippine natural gas industry. It also brought together the public and private sectors to shape the future share of natural gas in the country’s energy mix.

This year’s summit was organized by Leverage International in cooperation with the Department of Energy. Previously, it was arranged by the embassies of five major players in the global natural gas industry with operations in the Philippines. Keynote speakers included Vice President Jejomar Binay Sr., Department of Energy Secretary Carlos Jericho Petilla, and other local and international speakers. SGV Natural Resources Development Industry head Jimmy del Rosario, Assurance partners Alicia Lu and Peps Zabat III, senior director Ma. Johanna Agudo and Tax senior director Atty. Stephanie Vicente-Nava headed the MG 7 Oil and Gas Team that attended the conference.
