LNG and Transportation Future On Tap for April 2 Speaker Series

Published on March 27, 2014

Executives from Pivotal LNG and Element Markets Will Address
How Regulations Impact LNG Transportation

Complicated regulations and financing processes often slow the transportation growth of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the United States, with many experts asking what the future holds for transporting this renewable resource.

The C. T. Bauer College of Business at the University of Houston will host speakers to address this issue during the next Distinguished Leaders Series (DLS) of the spring semester. This free event will be held on April 2, with a discussion titled, “LNG and Transportation: A Look Into the Future.”

Presented by AGL Resources and their Houston-based companies, the DLS serves as an opportunity for exploring topical issues in business, with an emphasis on the energy industry.

A reception will be held in Cemo Hall at 5 p.m. before the 6 p.m. discussion. Click here to RSVP.
