Event Description

Eurogas is pleased to invite you to the 5th edition of its Central and Eastern European Conference (CEEC) taking place on 7-8 October 2019 at the Radisson Blu Latvija Hotel in Riga.
This year’s conference, organised with the kind support of Latvijas Gāze and Conexus Baltic Grid, will address the issue of “The Baltic Region: Setting the pace for gas market integration”, with a particular focus on the functioning of the regional gas market, as well as the potential of LNG and the value of storage.
During the last two years, the Baltic region has achieved huge progress in creating an integrated gas market. Today other EU countries and regions follow with interest the developments in the Baltic gas market that possibly may serve as a role model for their own way ahead.
