Our 5th Baltic Gas Conference took place on the 27th of November 2019 in Tallinn.

For the fifth time the German-Baltic Chamber of Commerce organized the Baltic Gas Conference. We were pleased to organized the conference in cooperation with the Estonian Gas Association, which celebrated its 25th anniversary.

 

The conference in Tallinn addressed the transformation of the European gas market with focus especially regarding the opening of the Finnish gas market and the commissioning of the Baltic Connector.
