Natural Gas Regulation Refresher Course

Experts from the gas sector shared with participants the current trends in the sector.

The course aimed to analyze the public policy guidelines driving gas regulations, and also, make a comparative analysis of the regulation in different countries to identify similarities and differences.

Speakers included Angel Castañeda, Law graduate from the Universidad de los Andes, and advisor to the leading energy sector organizations in Colombia, Peru, and Ecuador. He stressed the importance of the event and stated “this type of refresher courses allows energy sector individuals and other stakeholders to keep abreast of the developments in the regulation and the market opportunities, conveyed by specialists who present visions that normally are not available to individuals.  On the other hand, the courses provide an integrated vision derived from the wealth of having opinions from different nature participants allowing a 360 ° view which, in my opinion, is the best way to form a criterion.”

During the course, participants identified the different elements making up the LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) and LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) production. Castañeda explained the gas regulation applies when the gas is discovered in a reservoir after complex geology and physics studies.

After the speakers’ conferences, participants were able to understand regasification and gas storage activities. Students also analyzed propane gas regulation and identified the elements comprising gas transportation.

The course was organized by our House of Studies’ Mining-Energy Law Department.
