Q1. Do we have the means to transport natural gas in the East Mediterranean Sea?
Currently in the East Mediterranean Sea there is one major trans-regional pipeline and two Liquefied Natural Gas plants. The Arab Gas Pipeline is built to carry natural gas from Egypt to Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. There are two Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminals in Egypt, they can provide LNG ships to the whole world.
Q2. Would all the prospective petroleum resources be consumed locally?
After securing the energy supply of the local market, Lebanon is geographically very well-placed to provide regional and European countries with natural gas. Europe, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan and Syria could be potential export partners as they are looking forward to diversifying their energy supply, and they are not energy self-sufficient.
