13th International LNG/LPG Conference & Exhibition Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, October 18-21 The 13th International LNG & LPG Conference and Exhibition, Gastech 88, will be held in the Putra World Trade Center, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from October 18-21, 1988. It will be the first Gastech meeting to be held in a major LNG exporting country.

The extensive conference program includes more than 50 papers in nine sessions. The sessions will cover virtually all aspects of the natural gas, LNG and LPG industries and provide an excellent opportunity for delegates to meet in a productive and business-like atmosphere in a part of the world where there continues to be a great deal of gasrelated activity.

Malaysia is a thriving and dynamic democratic nation rich in natural resources including oil and gas. Kuala Lumpur, its capital, reflects the nation's inherently optimistic business climate, being among the most modern and advanced cities in South East Asia, but retaining much of the charm and attraction of the older Malay style.

The new $200-million Putra World Trade Center is an excellent example of a wholly modern building which strongly reflects Malaysia's native architectural heritage. It is built in the style of the steeproofed village long-houses still found throughout the country but the interior is—by any international standards—a superb conference and exhibition facility and possibly the finest of its kind ever used for a Gastech meeting.

The sessions in the current Gastech 88 program are: "World Gas Supplies"; "LPG Production and Trade"; "Liquefied Gas Terminals and Storage"; "Safety and Training"; "Transportation, Technology and Operations"; "Gas Opportunities, Utilization and Trades"; "The LNG Trades"; "Petrochemical Gases: Trading Prospects and Developments"; and "Gases as Transportation Fuels." To benefit both the delegates and the exhibitors, a two-year cycle has now been established for Gastech meetings by the organizers. This year's conference and exhibition is expected to draw more than 2,000 participants.
