Eastern Mediterranean Gas Pipeline

Cyprus, Greece, Italy, and Israel are growing over ownership of offshore fields in the eastern Mediterranean. In December 2018, the four countries signed a $7 billion agreement to provide Europe with natural gas. The deal, known as “East Med”, would help Europe diversify its energy portfolio, while simultaneously reduce its reliance on Russia. The pipeline linking these eastern Mediterranean gas resources will cross from Israel and Cyprus into Greece and Italy, and would be about 2,200 kilometer long.
