NICOSIA, Cyprus (Feb. 26, 2019) – Executives from leading oil and gas companies including Eni, ExxonMobil, Hellenic Petroleum, Noble Energy and Total are gathering in Cyprus to discuss the industry’s future direction in the Eastern Mediterranean.

Conference leader Catherine Watkins said, “EMGC is the only conference in the region with the ability to attract such widespread operator participation. For companies active in the region or looking to make an investment, EMGC is the perfect venue to acquire the latest information on the region’s developing natural gas industry, as well as gain entry to regional markets and seek new business opportunities.”
