With the discovery of the giant Zohr field offshore Egypt, the East Med has become a hot bed for hydrocarbon exploration & production activity. Most oil and gas majors are active in the region, including BP, ENI, Exxon Mobil, Total and Shell.

Egypt is at the forefront of this frontier, having turned the corner from importing to exporting LNG. Israel is already producing substantial quantities and the giant Leviathan gas field is about to come on stream, while Cyprus is continuing with its active and promising exploration programme. Lebanon has also started exploration and is embarking on a new licensing round. At the same time Greece has also awarded its first offshore licenses, attracting major international players.

In order to chart progress so far in the broader East Mediterranean hydrocarbon sector the Energy Institute in partnership with IENE is convening in London on October 7 a one day conference. Several speakers with first hand knowledge of developments in the ground have already confirmed their participation and include : Professor Jonathan Stern, Distinguished Research Fellow, Natural Gas Research Programme, The Oxford Institute for Energy Studies (OIES), Diana Kaissy, Executive Director, Lebanese Oil &b Gas Initiative (LOGI), Gina Cohen, Independent Consultant, Israel's Gas Industry, Libor Krkoska, Deputy Director, Country Strategy,European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Yiannis Grigoriou, CEO,Hellenic Petroleum Upstream Co, Yannis Bassias, President & CEO,Hellenic Hydrocarbon Resources Management (HHRM), Nicholas A Ioannides, Public International Law Expert, Alexandra Sdoukou, Energy Advisor to the President,New Democracy Party, Boyana Achovski, Secretary General,Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE) and Costis Stambolis, Executive Director,Institute of Energy for South East Europe
