Nice, France—November 12-15

Gastech 85, the International

LNG/LPG Conference and Exhibi- tion, will be held November 12-15 at the new Palais des Congres "Acro- polis" in Nice, France. This meeting will be the 11th in the very popular series, and the third to be held in

France, a country that has played a major role in the international liquefied gas industry.

This year marks the 20th anniver- sary of the French LNG program. It is appropriate, therefore, that

Pierre Alby, president of Gaz de

France, will deliver the opening ad- dress at the Gastech 85 Conference.

His speech will review French LNG achievements, the present state of the industry, and possible future developments. Gaz de France was the first European gas supply com- pany to lay a natural gas grid and, like British Gas, was a pioneer in the movement of LNG by sea with the

Arzew-Le Havre service that began in 1965, making it the world's long- est-running LNG import program.

The comprehensive Conference 32 program will feature more than 60 presentations from some 140 au- thors and panelists in nine sessions.

The session headings are: World

Gas Supplies; LPG Production and

Trade; Safety and Training; Devel- opment of Frontier Gas Fields;

Transportation, Technology and

Operations; Commercial, Documen- tation and Contracts; Gases as

Transportation Fuels; Liquefied

Gas Terminals and Storage; and

Technical Developments and Mate- rials.

The Gastech meetings have be- come the leading gathering place for all who have an involvement in

LNG and LPG. National flags from more than 50 participating nations will be displayed on the speakers' platform, and more than 2,000 dele- gates are expected in Nice for the

Gastech 85 meeting.

In addition to the Conference, the

Gastech meeting includes a major exhibition of LNG and LPG equipment, technology, and ser- vices. The display areas in the Pal-
