Bryan’s presentation will entail describing the importance of understanding the energy value chain, how the part of the industry you are working in fits into the broader picture and capitalizing on opportunities up or down the value chain (a value chain is the segments of an industry that each in their own right create value for a business or industry).  In order to be commercially pragmatic the growing liquefied natural gas industry will be used as the example to portray the attributes and the complexity of a value chain from both a technical and commercial perspective.
