Leaders from the global oil and gas industry and Libya’s National Oil Company are confirmed to speak at the 2nd Libya Forum taking place on September 16-18 at the Cortinthia Hotel in Tripoli.
National Oil Company decision makers, Minister of Oil & Gas H.E. Abdelbari Al-Arusi and NOC Chairman Dr Nurri Berruein, will provide an overview of Libya’s rich hydrocarbon sector, and the opportunities available for potential investors looking to enter the Libyan oil and gas market.
The oil and natural gas industry makes up more than 70 percent of Libya’s economy and generates almost all the state’s revenue according to the International Monetary Fund. Consequently, Libya is preparing to draw up a new oil law which will allow them to launch a licensing round and attract international investment for their biggest GDP industry.
The Libya Forum will bring together oil and gas decision makers from the Libyan government and industry stakeholders, to discuss these vast oil and gas investment opportunities.
In addition to NOC, industry experts from major IOC’s and service companies will provide insights into working in the Libyan oil and gas industry. Vice-president of Business Development at PetroFac, Jay Pearson, will take part in a discussion panel on how NOC’s can play a part in forming a new petroleum regime in Libya.
Furthermore, Wanis Elauremi, Joint Venture Manager of Eni North Africa B.V. – Libyan Branch and José Luis Tornero, General Manager of Repsol Exploración Murzuq S.A, will discuss the requirements in technology and the human capital development needed to meet Libya’s future production targets.
