Under the title " East Mediterranean: The new natural gas frontier", the Energy Institute in partnership with IENE is organising in London on October 7, a one day conference. Following the discoveries of major gas fields such as the Leviathan and Tamar in Israel, the Zohr in Egypt and the Aphrodite and Glafkos in Cyprus, the East Med has become a hot bed for hydrocarbon exploration and production activity. Today, most oil majors are active in the region, including BP, ENI, ExxonMobil, Total and Shell.

Egypt, which is at the forefront of East Med gas exploration and production,has turned the corner from importing to exporting LNG. Israel is already producing substantial quantities and the giant Leviathan field is about to come on stream, while Cyprus is continuing with its extensive exploration programme. Lebanon has also started exploration and is embarking on a new licensing round. Greece which made a comeback to hydrocarbon exploration only five years ago is now pursuing an extensive programme with eleven concession areas having attracted major international players.

The aim of the EI-IENE London conference is to chart progress so far in the broader East Med hydrocarbon sector and discuss key issues pertaining to geology, reservoir characteristics and geopolitics. A select group of speakers from all countries of the region but also from international oil companies and organisations have already confirmed their participation. Keynote speakers include Mathios Rigas from Energean, Lapo Pistelli from ENI, Dimitris Fessas from Cyprus Hydrocarbon Company, Mona Sukkadieh from Middle East Perspectives, Yannis Bassias from Hellenic Hydrocarbon Resources Management, Yiannis Grigoriou from Hellenic Petroleum, Gina Cohen, independent consultant from Israel, Professor Jonathan Stern, Charles Ellinas, Senior Fellow, Atlantic Institute and many others.

The topics to be covered in this highly topical event include the transformation of the offshore East Mediterranean into an energy exporting hotspot, insights into Egypt's and Israel's gas fields, the challenges faced by Cyprus as it pursues its extensive exploration programme, Lebanon's next exploration phase, Greece's exploration and production activities, the geology of the Eastern Mediterranean basin as an emerging major petroleum and gas province, gas exporting options such as the construction of a new liquefaction in Cyprus and the East Med pipeline, the EMG pipeline and Israel and Egypt's natural gas export deal and the prospects for establishing a regional gas trading hub.
