Abstracts set new all-time records for IGRC
We are very pleased to report to you, that we have received a total of 772 abstracts from 44 countries.
These are all-time records in the history of IGRC which goes back to 1980 when the first conference was held.
Such impressive figures reflect the current high interest in gas technology as well as the understanding that gas will play an increasing role in the future energy mix, and that technology will be the key to the future business model for gas growth. Read more about abstracts here
