Over 60 people attended this year’s event, representing the different companies that are members of the association. The programme started with a social event at Valencia’s City of Arts and Science on Wednesday 22 March and continued on the following day with a comprehensive reporting by all the Working Groups and the other bodies of the association on the activities carried out the past twelve months. The membership approved the budget and Work Plan for 2017 as well as the 2016 financials and the 2016 Annual Report of Activities (download here). New members were elected to the Board and the Executive Committee. Rudy Van Beurden (Fluxys LNG) was reappointed for a third mandate as chair of the Board of Directors.
The EASEE-gas general meeting also included two presentations by invited speakers: Anne Braaksma (GasTerra) spoke about the Dutch approach for gas to remain relevant in the energy transition. His presentation reviewed advocacy efforts to ensure gas continues to play a role in the new energy mix in The Netherlands. Sofía González & Luis Girón (Enagás) gave a demonstration about safety in LNG handling which was both informative and entertaining. They did some experiments with LNG physical-chemical properties and explained their implication in LNG safety.
