UK: Zyda Law Gas Storage and Transmission Workshop 2015
Last Updated: 11 February 2015

June 2015 sees the return of the 9th annual Gas Storage and Transmissions Conference. The conference provides delegates with a comprehensive overview of the market, looking at the current state of the European Gas Market and security of supply, gas transmission, new commission regulations and the flexibility of the UK market.

We are delighted to announce that Zyda Law will be hosting a workshop on"Consenting Gas Developments: Authorisation route maps" at this conference. The workshop will provide an interactive forum to discuss the legal issues and prevailing policies regulating gas storage and transmissions in the UK and across Europe. The session will focus on security of supply, achieving development consent for nationally significant infrastructure projects through the Planning Act 2008 process and the role of regulators.

We realise that understanding the legal aspects and policies relating to gas storage and transmissions in the UK and Europe can seem overwhelming. Therefore, this workshop will provide an overview of the prevailing legal process and policy with an opportunity for discussion and debate around the core issues. It will also focus on Zyda Law's experience in achieving consent for recent CCGT projects and an ongoing application for development consent for an underground gas storage project in Cheshire.

With over two decades of experience, Zyda Law is an award winning specialist planning and environmental law firm with a 100% success record in gaining consent for major infrastructure projects. We have considerable experience in the energy generation market, with specific experience of gas generation proposals (CCGTs). We have advised on two CCGTs and won all necessary statutory consents for two major UK major underground gas storage depots in Cheshire. We are currently advising INEOS Enterprises on a proposed new major gas storage project

In addition, Principal Solicitor, Paul Zyda, will be conducting a speech on "Infrastructure Planning and Politics" on Day 1 of the conference at 3pm. The speech will encompass the procedure for acquiring consent for major gas infrastructure projects, whether planning permission or a development consent order is required, and local issues and community funds.

The Gas Storage and Transmissions Conference will take place on Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th June 2015. Tickets are available on the website. The conference will take place at the Marriott Hotel, Regents Park, London, NW3 3ST.
