Session5: A Long-term vision of natural gas pipeline network creation in Northeast Asia and mechanisms of its realization

In the Session 5 of the conference, an international joint research titled "A Long-term Vision of Natural Gas Trunkline in Northeast Asia" was presented. For the first time in its history, the NAGPF conducted the joint research in collaboration with each member organization. The presentation of the joint research results was a highlight of the conference. This international joint research showed the comprehensive vision of an international gas pipeline network with the consent of each member organization. Main results of the joint research can be used for the following:
1. To be the best reference in order to grasp the energy situation of each country, since it covers the latest information on the current and/or future energy perspectives of each Northeast Asian country
2. To point out the necessity of the cooperation of each production area by grasping the perspectives of natural gas supply and demand, not only in terms of country, but also in terms of region in each Northeast Asian country.
3. To propose a long-term vision of a natural gas trunkline targeted for 2020 on the basis of the above regional balance of natural gas supply and demand.
