The Stanford Natural Gas Initiative Annual Meeting brings together a range of external stakeholders and the Stanford community to hear from leading researchers and thought leaders and to discuss a range of important topics related to natural gas production and use and the associated environmental, social, and economic benefits and costs. The 2018 meeting will feature speakers and panelists from Stanford, NGI member companies, and invited guests and is the best venue to see the range of current research about natural gas at Stanford.
Planned topics include:
Unconventional reservoir management and recovery factors -- with a focus on unconventional reservoir geomechanics, subsurface uncertainty, and shale reservoir development and optimization; key speakers include Mark Zoback, Tony Kovscek, and Jef Caers
Lifecycle assessment of natural gas -- including a major new assessment of North American natural gas exported to Asia for power generation and industrial heating; key speaker is Adam Brandt
Distributed energy generation, storage, and mini-grids
Data science, artificial intelligence, and digital technologies in natural gas; key speaker Jef Caers

Stanford is roughly equidistant from the San Francisco and San Jose airports. Three major airports serve the San Francisco Bay Area, including San Francisco International (SFO), San Jose Mineta International (SJC), and Oakland International (OAK). Although San Francisco is the largest of the area airports and offers the most airlines and flights, some visitors find that San Jose’s smaller size makes it a somewhat more convenient alternative, especially for domestic flights.
