Senior executives from Technip, Aker Solutions, Romgaz, Noble Energy, Delek Drilling, Baker Hughes, UBS will be participating and attending the conference focusing on 'Shaping the Future for Israel and the Region.'

With vast gas resources already discovered in Israel, further discoveries by Italy's ENI off the coast of Egypt and potential in Cyprus, the East Mediterranean region could become a collaborative exporter of gas to Europe and further afield in the future.

A notable speaker on the third day of UOG 2015, Italy's Ambassador to Israel, H.E. Ambassador Francesco Maria Talò, will certainly look to highlight the benefit of strong Italy-Israel ties in developing these vast resources.

Moreover, as expert speakers from the Israel Ministry of Energy and the US Geological Survey will show, there is much more gas and potential oil to be found in Israel and the East Mediterranean waters.

Chief Operating Officer of UOG 2015, Joshua Beagelman tells us more about this unique opportunity for delegates to learn about exploration opportunities for the international market in Israel and how to get involved:

"We are excited to bring together some of the global oil hubs to Israel for the first time to encourage participation in the region's huge oil and gas opportunities. Delegates attending will have a unique chance to meet with government officials, local players as well international players looking to enter Israel's emerging oil and gas market."
