Towards a Paradigm Shift in the Eastern Mediterranean Energy Markets
Redefining the Mediterranean Gas Province: It is wonderful to see the Egyptian people taking back their stolen revolution in a peaceful way. Strategic relations between Cyprus and Egypt are now back on track. The strengthening of Cyprus and Egypt bilateral relations in energy matters could serve as a catalyst for a broader cooperation on a regional level. Lebanon is also emerging as a new oil and gas player. This could reshape the energy map and rapidly make the Eastern Mediterranean a world-class gas province.

Improving Europe Access to the Eastern Mediterranean Gas
LNG / Gas Monetization: Unlike other commodities, exporting natural gas is a very expensive decision that requires years of development. Egypt has the potential to quickly reshape the Mediterranean Energy landscape, thanks to its unique gas export infrastructure. Egypt is the only county in the region having gas export capabilities ready to monetize Eastern Mediterranean gas discoveries. This session highlights innovative solutions and initiatives to facilitate export and to improve European access to the Eastern Mediterranean Gas.
