2nd Annual Balkans Oil & Gas 2013 Summit – Athens 24-25th September

2nd Annual Balkans Oil & Gas 2013 Summit - Athens 24-25th September

Oil & Gas licensing rounds and pipeline projects in the Balkan

 At the end of May, leaders from Albania, Boznia-Herzegovina, Montenegro and Croatia signed an agreement about the construction of two new pipelines, the Trans-Adriatic (TAP) and the Ionian-Adriatic (IAP). Being a point of discussion for many years, the two pipeline projects will carry natural gas from the Caspian basin, starting from Greece via Albania and the Adriatic Sea to Italy and Western Europe. The significance of the two projects is high as the TAP pipeline alone is anticipated to offer capacity for gas export volumes from Azerbaijan to Europe for a period of 25 years.At the end of May, leaders from Albania, Boznia-Herzegovina, Montenegro and Croatia signed an agreement about the construction of two new pipelines, the Trans-Adriatic (TAP) and the Ionian-Adriatic (IAP).

Balkans is one of the most upcoming and promising regions that holds major proven reserves but remains underexplored. The region’s economy is now booming with new opportunities in infrastructure, transportation and of course, energy projects.

The oil and gas sector is the most promising industry in this prosperous business environment within Europe, and with Romania leading the oil and gas sector in the Black Sea, the 2nd Annual Balkans Oil & Gas 2013 Summit is here to cover the entire region with exclusive discussions among the key players of each country, with case studies demonstrating real examples of success stories in Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia, Albania and Greece.
