This event will will explore the energy of geopolitics of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Role of Greece.
The Eastern Mediterranean region is changing fast. With new gas discoveries in the last few years containing estimated reserves of 25 tcf, the Eastern Mediterranean will soon become the new gas frontier. The discovery of the East Med gas resources comes at a time when world demand for energy is growing rapidly, many are questioning the reliability of supplies from Russia, and Western governments are encouraging the diversification of supply to ensure energy security. Now that the geopolitical map of the region is being redrawn, there is an urgent need to understand the new regional realities and emerging issues.
