ASPROFOS participated in the "Athens Natural Gas Forum 2014: Achieving Energy Security, Development and Regional Cooperation" which took place during June 30, 2014.
The first analyzes of data from seismic surveys recently carried out by PGS indicate the existence of promising hydrocarbon targets in the Ionian Sea and the sea area south of Crete. The exploitation of hydrocarbon fields in Greece and the Cypriot and Israeli Natural Gas resources, in combination with the Ukrainian crisis, the instability in the Middle East and Northern Africa and the need for energy sufficiency in Europe, make Greece a focal region for the global energy industry, both as a producer as well as an energy gate for Europe. The rearrangement of the geopolitical balance, the deregulation of the domestic energy market, the privatization of the Greek public energy sector and the infrastructure needed to develop and exploit new resources, create significant investment opportunities and financial needs. Both upstream and downstream industries are closely monitoring these developments, while international companies and joint ventures have already begun investing in equipment, including offshore oil drilling ships and support vessels.
Organized for the second time by the Hellenic Institute of Entrepreneurship and Sustainable Development (IEA), SGT Symeon G. Tsomokos S.A. and Boussias Communications, the Athens Natural Gas Forum 2014: Achieving Energy Security, Development and Regional Cooperation, will take place in Athens, on 30 June 2014, in Grande Bretagne Hotel.
The forum features panel discussions and keynote presentations by Greek and international institutional representatives, officials from major Greek and global companies, national and international experts, consultants and regulatory agents who will share their views and insights on options and innovative strategies for the development of the Natural Gas sector in Greece as well as in Southeastern Europe.
