As is customary in IGU’s Conferences, a luncheon will be organised every day, to provide a break from the intensive activities of both the Conference and exhibition, as well as an opportunity to network with colleagues from the global gas community.

There is an additional charge should delegates wish to attend the luncheons. Please check the cost in the registration section of the Preliminary Programme. You will be able to register from 1 February, 2009. Luncheons will be handled on a first-come, first-served basis.

These luncheons are hosted by the following companies, who will introduce the speaker appointed for each event:

Tuesday 6 October, 12.00 – 13.30

Speaker: Rune Bjørnson, Executive Vice President, STATOILHYDRO
