INTERNATIONAL. With huge gas finds in the Mediterranean, new gas-LNG ventures afoot, accelerating acreage leasing and major capital investment projects across the region, the Middle East and North African oil and gas market remains one of the biggest and most dynamic energy markets in the world.

Therefore, the regional exploration, oil/gas-LNG and energy game attracts a growing number of companies and investors who find new business opportunities.

The conference in Geneva focuses on the exploration and development ventures of national oil companies, governments and companies in this vast and complex region.

value chain."
