The Minister of Energy and Water announced on 4 September 2013 that the date to submit the bids pertaining to Lebanon’s First Offshore Licensing Round has been extended from 4 November 2013 to 10 December 2013.
This extension in the period is due to the delay in the issuance of the Decrees related to the Delineation of the Offshore Blocks and the model Exploration and Production Agreement by the Lebanese Cabinet.
Out of the ten blocks of the Lebanese offshore, the following five blocks - Blocks 1, 4, 5, 6 and 9 - are open for bidding within the First Licensing Round, with the possibility of opening additional blocks for bidding after the Cabinet session that will be convened to ratify the two decrees mentioned above.

CONFERENCES RELATING TO PETROLEUM SECTOR - BEIRUT, LEBANON
The high level of interest in the Petroleum Sector within Lebanon is generating a considerable number of conferences and technical workshops on the opportunities that are arising. The Ministry of Energy and Water (MEW) and the Petroleum Administration (PA) provide patronage for a number of these events, but is aware of others taking place in which it is not involved. It should be noted therefore that the material presented at conferences by third parties (particularly those events not endorsed by either MEW or the PA) may not accurately reflect the position of the MEW or PA. The PA does have an active engagement program to keep all parties informed as to progress and developments within the petroleum sector.
