  • (1888PressRelease) February 24, 2015 - Gulf Publishing Company is pleased to announce that Noble Energy will once again serve as the lead sponsor for the third annual Eastern Mediterranean Gas Conference (EMGC) that will take place at the Hilton Cyprus in Nicosia, Cyprus on 17-18 March 2015. Hyperion Systems Engineering will return as the conference Gold Sponsor. The 2015 conference is also supported by Deloitte, GE Oil & Gas, Wood Group Mustang, Radius Communications, Tiger Offshore, Petroleum Economist, Cyprus Gas News, and the Cyprus Oil & Gas Association.

    New for 2015 is the addition of a breakfast workshop, free to conference attendees, hosted by Deloitte. The workshop will cover the challenges that oil and gas companies will face as they establish operations in the Cyprus environment, including direct taxation, indirect taxation (VAT), human capital and other related operational matters. Workshop attendees will learn how to navigate these challenges and optimize operational efficiency and related tax cost.

    A series of recent discoveries by Noble Energy and its partners has increased the estimated gross resources of natural gas in the region to 40 trillion cubic feet (Tcf). Policy is currently underway to determine how natural gas will be exported. During the two-day conference, attendees will have numerous opportunities to network with executives and government officials who are actively involved in developing the region's natural gas industry and learn how their company can establish business operations in the area.

    "With this year's event we will explore the potential uses of the Cyprus discovered natural gas resources of 4.5 Tcf, including regional distribution and transportation issues, as well as downstream applications," said John Royall, President and CEO of Gulf Publishing Company.

    EMGC provides a special focus on the latest geopolitical, market and technology trends related to the exploration, drilling, production, processing and marketing of natural gas in the area. The conference will cover critical issues such as resource potential, leasing/permitting, development plans, infrastructure requirements, governmental plans and regulations and more.
