Welcome to the 5th Lebanon International Oil & Gas Summit

With a highly topical agenda and a crowd of esteemed speakers, delegates, sponsors and supporters, the Lebanon International Oil & Gas Summit has firmly established itself as the leading, international and annual oil and gas event for Lebanon.

Launched in 2012 to support Lebanon’s initial findings and to explore the potential of the country’s hydrocarbon resources, the Lebanon International Oil & Gas Summit (LIOG) provides THE meeting place for industry executives and experts to gain invaluable insight to the opportunities presented in Lebanon; the challenges and the road ahead for companies and investors.

With the new formation of the Lebanese government, everything is in place for companies to establish a presence in one of the most exciting nascent oil and gas markets. 

The new cabinet is expected to benefit from great opportunities, particularly on the economic and financial fronts. The newly appointed minister of energy and water, HE Mrs. Nada Boustani, one of four newly appointed female ministers, will lead this process with a long and informed career within the ministry.

Held under the patronage of Lebanon’s Ministry of Energy and Water, the Summit will be at the centre of the expected developments, including the start of exploration drilling in two maritime blocks, the launch of the second licensing round offshore Lebanon, and the introduction of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) for the first time to the Lebanese market through FSRUs.

Organised around the slogan, ‘A full stream of insights and opportunities’, LIOG 2019 will run over three days from 2 to 4 April 2019 at the prestigious Hilton Beirut Habtoor Grand Hotel. It will include a two-day strategic conference, along with a technical day, covering the whole value chain of the petroleum industry in Lebanon.

With over 600 participants from around the world expected to attend again, including top public and private sector officials - this year’s edition of the LIOG Summit comes at a crucial time to provide a large crowd of participants with the best possible platform for insightful information and debate, and dedicated networking opportunities for purposeful meetings and building partnerships.
