Mediterranean energy and natural gas perspectives

On 9 December 2021, at the Millennium Hotel Paris Opéra in Paris, the OME as Secretariat of the UfM Gas Platform, in cooperation with the European Commission, organized two events within the framework of the 2020-22 Program of Work of the UfM Gas Platform.

The first part was structured as a capacity building session and provided an overview of the most important factors and uncertainties likely to affect the Mediterranean energy trends over the next 30 years under three different scenarios. It also dealt with the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic on energy transition in the region. The session followed the launch, earlier this year, of OME’s flagship publication, Mediterranean Energy Perspectives to 2050. The second part of the event was structured as workshop where participants debated changing dynamics in global and Mediterranean gas markets.

The two events gave an opportunity to all actors of the gas chain to hear from policy makers and industry on the key challenges, benefits and opportunities for strengthening and deepening cooperation and collaboration on energy and natural gas issues.
