7th Mediterranean Oil & Gas Forum 2016

The 7th Mediterranean Oil and Gas Forum 2016 was a huge success! 

This year’s forum attracted government decision makers, oil and gas leaders, and investors, in order to facilitate commercial agreements and geopolitical understanding in the oil and gas industry of Eastern Mediterranean. The recently approved third licensing round for hydrocarbons exploration within Cypriot EEZ and the Trilateral Summit Declaration of Cyprus, Israel & Greece opens up new energy investment in the region.

The Forum proceedings under the Chatham House rule combined with the high caliber of speakers and delegates enabled the dissemination of market insight regarding the upstream developments in Cyprus, Israel, Egypt and Greece.

We look forward to welcoming you to the next 8th Mediterranean Oil and Gas Forum 2017 on 7 & 8 March at the Hilton Cyprus in Nicosia.
