Drought conditions have focused the spotlight on Brazil’s energy sector and have brought to the fore important questions with regards to the role of natural gas for its energy matrix. Natural gas currently makes up a small percentage of energy consumption with the bulk of supplies imported from Bolivia and by way of liquefied natural gas (LNG). But the country counts important potential reserves of both conventional and unconventional natural gas from onshore fields, as well as offshore basins and the Pre-Salt.

Discussion of the role for natural gas in Brazil’s energy mix from electricity to transportation to the downstream will be key areas for discussion at the roundtable. Additionally, panels will debate where LNG fits in Brazil’s natural gas outlook as well as the potential for unconventional gas in the near and medium term. ]
