EMC 2021 has been the first event of its scale to bring the industry of the Eastern Mediterranean to explore the commercial and technical development of the energy basin. Fueling both localised and wider region interest, leading stakeholders gathered to debate and assess the outlook for both upstream project development and downstream consumer markets.

It is no doubt that the Eastern Mediterranean is developing into a cleaner energy hub. Attendees of EMC enjoyed the perfect platform connecting with the region’s leading natural gas, renewables, and hydrocarbon stakeholders, and will be investing in the years to come.
