Lebanon's Future in Oil and Gas - Commencing Exploration

Share this:

December 2018:

Lebanon's long-awaited exploration of oil and gas is right around the corner, expected to commence in 2019. After years of delay due to political deadlock, Lebanon has rightfully been granted permission to initiate their search for oil and gas. Lebanon`s interest lies in exploring the Eastern Mediterranean sea for potential oil and gas. This may have been brought about due to the fact that significant fields of oil and gas have been discovered in the Levant and Cyprus basins. The potential that this excavation may hold could be of high magnitude, with hopes to alleviate budget deficits and kick-start the economy. 

Lebanon's Planned Oil and Gas Exploration
Lebanon gained the necessary approval to plan and, subsequently, commence their excavation in December 2017. According to Reuters there is an estimate of 96 trillion cubic feet of natural gas reserves and an incredible 865 million barrels of oil offshore. Although, pre-exploration, this is only an estimate, the potential aftermath and impacts of the exploration may be beneficial for the country on many different levels. Lebanon`s exploration of oil and gas hopes to bring about a major economic boost, creating numerous businesses and employment opportunities. The future could be bright for Lebanon. Furthermore, the country`s strategic geographical location endows it with diverse export options. In hope of beginning in 2019, Lebanon are about to kick-off 2019 in spectacular fashion. Lebanon`s vision is the fuel for success and with the right maintenance, they can utilise the profit from oil and gas and the country as a whole will reap the rewards. 

"As such, the oil and gas sector provides a genuine opportunity for a soft landing in the Lebanese economy,“ -  Bank Audi.
