2nd Annual East Mediterranean and North African Gas Forum

Thursday, Nov 22, 2012

Exploring the Commercial and Strategic Opportunities Available in the Region

Following on from the success of the 2012 event, which attracted over 100 key decision makers, the 2nd Annual East Mediterranean and North African Gas Forum will take place in Rome, Italy on 26 – 28 February 2013. It will look at developments within both regions in the last twelve months and explore the opportunities and challenges presented by the current commercial landscape.

The Forum programme covers issues occurring throughout the upstream and midstream gas sectors of this geographic market, particularly addressing recent geopolitical, trade, and intra-region gas infrastructure issues. It will look at recent discoveries and predicted offshore and onshore E&P activity in the region and what implications this will have on the European and global gas market.

Key topics covered at the 2013 event include:

• Assessing the recent political developments for impacted regions and what this means for the future of their energy security
• Identifying the commercial landscape for investment in Cyprus – Which regions are poised to become leading producers for both domestic and export markets?
