Croatia – Expect Oil & Gas Developments Soon
This year’s event, originally to be held in Athens, Greece, will now be hosted in Dubrovnik, Croatia with the full support of the Croatian Ministry of Economy and the Croatian Hydrocarbon Agency to bring to the Summit’s delegation a highly valuable Balkans Summit on 23rd-25th September 2015.
The 4th Balkans Oil & Gas Summit will also be held under the endorsement of the Ministry of Energy and Industry of Albania, the Ministry of Economy of Montenegro and the Federal Ministry of Energy, Mining and Industry of Bosnia-Herzegovina with Government Officials joining from all over the Balkans region.
Croatia has been attending and supporting the senior level meeting since its origination in 2012. Here’s what Alen Leveric, Deputy Minister of Economy said about the Balkans Oil & Gas Summit;
“Since 2012, we had the unique opportunity to annually report and promote all development stages of one of the most important Croatian strategic projects – exploration and exploitation of hydrocarbons (onshore and offshore).
In June 2015, Croatian government published that three companies (Vermilion Zagreb Exploration, INA and Oando PLC) will share six licences to explore for oil and gas in Croatia’s northern Drava river basin and in the east of the country.
In January 2015, Croatia awarded 10 offshore oil and gas exploration licences for drilling in the Adriatic. Seven licences went to a consortium of Marathon Oil and OMV, two to INA and one to a consortium of ENI and Medoilgas.
With this in mind, Croatia is definitely on their way of becoming an energy leader in the south-eastern Europe.” Alen Leveric, Deputy Minister, Ministry of Economy, Croatia
Many international and national oil companies have already confirmed their participation in the Summit with the organisers expecting the attendance of 200 senior level executives.
