Session 4: East Med Natural Gas Development Opportunity

East Med Natural Gas Development Opportunity

Senior-level Roundtable

This session provides an opportunity for a senior-level dialogue about progressing the natural gas opportunity of the Eastern Mediterranean. What will the next decade bring for gas with an increasing focus on climate change and what needs to be in place for success? How is technology evolving for deep water gas exploration and what risk aspects need to be considered whilst assessing investment in gas projects? What are the hopes for the Eastern Mediterranean Gas Forum and what else can be done to ensure that this resource is maximised as gas seeks to find a place in a rapidly de-carbonising world? How can co-ordinated development be achieved to produce economies of scale required to create competitive regional gas-export infrastructure? What impact will the reforms have for investors and midstream companies?

North Africa Gas Forum

Senior-level Roundtable

This senior-level roundtable is dedicated to discussing the fast-moving dynamics of North Africa’s gas challenges and opportunities. What are the opportunities presented by domestic gas-to-power projects and off-takers as well as access to export markets for regional players? Is North Africa poised to become a regional natural gas hub and how can existing LNG infrastructure to export regional gas supplies benefit all regional players involved? Is commercial gas cooperation within reach between Egypt and neighbouring countries if new gas resources are found in the region?
