First Licensing Round Update

On Wednesday the 4th of January 2017, the Cabinet approved two crucial decrees that are necessary to allow the Lebanese authorities to resume the first offshore licensing round. The two decrees are related to the delineation of the ten offshore blocks, and to the Tender Protocol (TP) – that describes in details the bidding and evaluation process, and the Exploration and Production Agreement (EPA) – that refers to the model agreement, which will be concluded between the Lebanese State and the winning consortium within a defined area.
