DAY 1 – Sept. 16th, 2020

Doing Business in Cyprus & the Eastern Med Oil and Gas Industry

Developments in the offshore exploration of oil and gas assets in Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean are rarely far from the headlines in recent times. As the impact of COVID-19 continues to be felt on the global markets, Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean as the latest frontier energy hub remains an area of active E&P activity.

Often overlooked, it is the practicalities of entering frontier markets that cause the most difficulties – from investment avenues to corporate strategies, license bidding, HSE, CSR, employment law & recruitment as well as the importance of uniform technical standards, the hurdles to overcome market entry remain numerous.

This webinar will explore all of these issues and more, watch the video and download the presentations to arm you with the practical tools to effectively operate in Cyprus and the wider region.

DAY 1 – July 29th, 2020

The Outlook for the Oil and Gas Industry in the Mediterranean – 2020 & beyond


With the global economy reeling from the COVID-19 pandemic, no industry has been hit as hard as the Oil & Gas sector. With a rapid decline in US & EMEA hydrocarbon demand, many projects have been severely impacted by the record drop in crude oil prices.

Many frontier E&P projects retain a profitability margin in excess of $60 per barrel and with a sluggish outlook for demand recovery, many operators are consolidating existing projects as opposed to maintaining plans to explore in frontier basins. The Eastern Mediterranean is no exception and this free-of-charge webinar will assess the following the key issues facing key stakeholders in the region.
