Natural Gas Workshop: “What Makes A Natural Gas Marketplace Work?”

February 5-9, 2007

NNPC Towers, Abuja

Organized by the Resource Center for Energy Economics and Regulation

and supported by










The goal of this workshop is to help participants better understand the requirements for a reasonably well-functioning natural gas marketplace in the West Africa sub-region. The work will touch on each of the major requirements illustrated in the chart at right.

  • Natural gas resource and infrastructure investment for delivery to customers

  • Standards for daily gas market operations

  • Access to natural gas equipment and services for customers and consumers

  • Access to information on safe use, alternative uses, and choices

  • Policy and regulatory frameworks required to balance business and customer/consumer interests.

Delegates to the workshop will come from the government and business sectors as well as customer groups, news media and universities. The program will cover both the West Africa Gas Pipeline and directly affected countries (Nigeria, Benin, Togo and Ghana) as well as internal and other regional considerations for expanded development of natural gas resources and enhanced use of natural gas for domestic and regional economic development and trade. Finally, the program will include the role of the sub-region in global natural gas trade.
This workshop is by invitation. There are a limited number of spaces. Please contact Ms. Ruzanna Makaryan at CEE regarding invitations and attendance: Ruzanna.makaryan@beg.utexas.edu or 713-654-5400.
