The significant discoveries of natural gas in the Levant basin, particularly in the Leviathan, Tamar and Aphrodite fields, have raised several questions.
How will the recently discovered hydrocarbon impact the region's energy security? How will natural gas change the geopolitical landscape of the Eastern Mediterranean? And will Eastern Mediterranean gas contribute in diversifying the EU's sources of supply in line with Europe's quest to strengthen its energy security?
The aim of the conference was to provide realistic and objective answers to the questions raised. The event provided a platform for a rich debate around the importance of the new discoveries on both a regional and international level. Our speakers also highlighted the prerequisites and limitations to sourcing the market with natural gas supply.
